About this book


This book focuses on recent research in modern optimization and its implications in control and data analysis. This book is a collection of papers from the conference “Optimization and Its Applications in Control and Data Science” dedicated to Professor Boris T. Polyak, which was held in Moscow, Russia on May 13-15, 2015.

This book reflects developments in theory and applications rooted by Professor Polyak’s fundamental contributions to constrained and unconstrained optimization, differentiable and nonsmooth functions, control theory and approximation. Each paper focuses on techniques for solving complex optimization problems in different application areas and recent developments in optimization theory and methods. Open problems in optimization, game theory and control theory are included in this collection which will interest engineers and researchers working with efficient algorithms and software for solving optimization problems in market and data analysis. Theoreticians in operations research, applied mathematics, algorithm design, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and software engineering will find this book useful and graduate students will find the state-of-the-art research valuable.

“This book, organized and nicely edited by Professor Goldengorin, reflects some recent advances in the areas of optimization, control, and data sciences in the directions largely initiated and developed by Boris Polyak over the years. … I would like to congratulate the editor and all the authors of the papers presented in the book on their excellent work to celebrate great achievements and scientific life of Boris Teodorovich Polyak.” (Boris S. Mordukhovich, Optimization Letters, Vol. 11, 2017)
