Special: Gongguo Tang

Dec. 7, 2015

Atomic decomposition and completion of moment sequences: from super-resolution to tensor factorization Gongguo Tang Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science , Colorado School of Mines Date and time: Monday, December 7, 2015 - 4:00pm Location: ECOT 226 Abstract: Modern data analysis relies on identifying complex, nonlinear models from noisy...

Special: Yu-Jui Huang

Dec. 1, 2015

Time-Consistent Stopping Yu-Jui Huang School of Mathematical Sciences , Dublin City University Date and time: Tuesday, December 1, 2015 - 1:30pm Location: ECCR 257 Abstract: We study optimal stopping in continuous time, under non-exponential discounting. Our framework particularly captures decreasing impatience, a phenomenon well-documented in Behavioral Finance. Since non-exponential discounting...
