40 Years of Linear Algebra and Optimization at Stanford

I came to Stanford in 1967 as a very green graduate student (not in today's ecological sense). Computer Science was a new department, as was Operations Research. The CS qualifying exams allowed 3 out of 5 topics, including numerical analysis. more››

Optimal and better transport plans II

We consider the Monge-Kantorovick transport problem in a purely measure theoretic setting, i.e. without imposing continuity assumptions on the cost function. It is known that transport plans which are concentrated on c-monotone sets are optimal, pr more››

Why Simple Algorithms Can Be Complex: Toward a Systematic Study of Algorithms?

Richard Karp has called Computer Science the systematic study of algorithms. This raises the question as to how much the design and analysis of algorithms is a systematic study or science as opposed to say an art form as suggested by the title of Don more››
