Convex Analysis and Applications (Invited Minisymposium)

Convex analysis is an important tool for newly developing subjects in optimization, such as, nonsmooth analysis and interior point methods, etc. The speakers in this minisymposium will present results of convex analysis in a nonsmooth framework including applications in algorithmic development, in mechanics, and in operations research.
