Events: IPAM Workshop "HPC and Data Science for Scientific Discovery"

October 15th, 2018
The workshop "HPC and Data Science for Scientific Discovery", Oct. 15-19, 2018, is part of the Long Program "Science at Extreme Scales: Where Big Data Meets Large-Scale Computing" at the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM), University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Peter Benner presents an invited lecture "Low-rank tensor methods for simulation, optimization and uncertainty quantification of parametric PDEs", and Pawan Goyal contributes a poster.

Paper: Hierarchical Approximate Proper Orthogonal Decomposition

October 4th, 2018
Stephan Rave (WWU Münster), Tobias Leibner (WWU Münster) and Christian Himpe developed an error-driven proper orthogonal decomposition algorithm for big data sets. The hierarchical approximate proper orthogonal decomposition (HAPOD) enables low-rank approximations on super computers with minimal communication as well as on single board computers with limited memory.
History of Lyapunov residuals and inner tolerances of (in)exact LR-ADI

Preprint: Inexact methods for the low rank solution to large scale Lyapunov equations

September 18th, 2018
Melina Freitag (Uni Bath) and Patrick Kürschner investigate the effect of inexact linear solves in rational Krylov subspace and low-rank ADI methods for large matrix equations. Dynamic stopping criteria are developed that decrease the amount of work spent in solving the sequences of linear systems.

Events: 5th European Conference on Computational Optimization (EUCCO)

September 10th, 2018
The 5. EUCCO took place September 10-12, 2018, at the University of Trier. It had 106 participants. CSC contributed in the following ways: Peter Benner (program committee and talk in Special Session), Jan Heiland (organization of the Special Session "Model order reduction and low-rank approximation for nonlinear problems"), as well as Christian Himpe and Roman Weinhandl (talks in in Special Session).
