MFO Event
Workshop Computational Optimization on Manifolds

A proposal by Pierre-Antoine Absil, Roland Herzog and Gabriele Steidl to host a mini-workshops on Computational Optimization on Manifolds at the Oberwolfach Research Institute for Mathematics (MFO) has been approved. The mini-workshop was going to take place from March 22 until March 28, 2020. However it needed to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
