Guest Speaker: Charles Van Loan, Cornell University
"Looking for Kronecker Products"

7:30 PM-9:30 PM
Chair: Alan George, University of Waterloo, Canada
Golden Cliff changed to Rendezvous Room, Snowbird Center -2nd floor

In this presentation, the speaker will do everything possible to convince the audience that the Kronecker product (KP) is the matrix operation of the 1990's! He will explain why various trends in image processing, computer science, and optimization point to the increasing occurrence of the KP. On the algorithmic side, the focus will be on some highly structured nonlinear least square problems that arise when seeking "best" KP approximations.
