Generalizations of the Alternating Direction Method of Multipliers for LargeScale and Distributed Optimization
(201506)The alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) has been revived in recent years due to its effectiveness at solving many largescale and distributed optimization problems, particularly arising from the areas of ... 
Generalized Conjugate Directions
(198512)This paper presents a simple unifying framework for a wide class of conjugate directions algorithms whose iterates minimize some quadratic functional over a subspace. Our approach is motivated by its advantages for nonlinear ... 
Generalized Newton Methods for Crack Problems with NonPenetration Condition
(200311)A class of semismooth Newton methods for unilaterally constrained variational problems modelling cracks under a nonpenetration condition are introduced and investigated. On the continuous level, a penalization technique ... 
Generalized Pattern Searches with Derivative Information
(200206)A common question asked by users of direct search algorithms is how to use derivative information at iterates where it is available. This paper addresses that question with respect to Generalized Pattern Search (GPS) ... 
Genetic Suppression of Transgenic APP Rescues Hypersynchronous Network Activity in a Mouse Model of Alzeimer's Disease
(2014)Alzheimer's disease (AD) is associated with an elevated risk for seizures that may be fundamentally connected to cognitive dysfunction. Supporting this link, many mouse models for AD exhibit abnormal electroencephalogram ... 
Geometrical Optics for QuasiP Waves: Theories and Numerical Methods
(200004)The quasiP wave in anisotropic solids is of practical importance in obtaining maximal imaging resolution in seismic exploration. The geometrical optics term in the asymptotic expansion for the wave characterizes the high ...
