LIDS Seminar Series – Regret of Queueing Bandits

September 17, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Sanjay Shakkotai (University of Texas, Austin)

32-155

LIDS Seminar Series Speaker: Sanjay Shakkotai Affiliation: University of Texas, Austin Abstract: We consider a variant of the multiarmed bandit (MAB) problem where jobs or tasks queue for service, and service rates of different servers (agents) may be unknown. Such (queueing+learning) problems are motivated by a vast range of service systems, including supply and demand in online platforms (e.g., Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, Upwork, etc.), order flow in financial markets (e.g., limit order books), communication systems, and supply chains. We study…

LIDS Seminar Series – Augmented Lagrangians and Decomposition in Convex and Nonconvex Programming

October 15, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Terry Rockafellar (University of Washington)

32-155

LIDS Seminar Series Speaker: Terry Rockafellar Affiliation: University of Washington Abstract: Multiplier methods based on augmented Lagrangians are attractive in convex and nonconvex programming for their stabilizing and even convexifying properties. They have widely been seen, however, as incompatible with taking advantage of a block-separable structure. In fact, when articulated in the right way, they can produce decomposition algorithms in which low-dimensional subproblems can be solved in parallel. Convergence in the nonconvex case is, of course, just local, but is…
