Welcome from the Chair
1st Symmetry Webinar
Research on Nonlinear Analysis and Its Applications
This webinar is devoted to recent advances in nonlinear analysis and its applications.
The growing significance of nonlinear analysis and its applications has been realized in the recent years. This is due not only to theoretical achievements in this area but also because of its numerous applications in engineering, economics, biology, behavioral sciences, etc. It has become increasingly evident that nonlinear analysis is of crucial importance in the mathematical sciences. Its ideas and methods have become essential tools in the analysis of nonlinear phenomena in many areas of mathematics. Among these areas, one can mention ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations, nonlinear operator theory, the calculus of variations, optimal control theory, optimization, and mathematical economics.
Our aim is for this webinar to be valuable to mathematicians and applied scientists who are interested in recent developments in nonlinear analysis and its applications.

Linearized Assignment Flows for Learning Data Labelings on Graphs
In the first part of the talk, I will discuss different viewpoints on local classification of metric data. Next, I will outline how local decisions are aggregated into non-local interacting decisions through regularization. This prepares and motivates the design of a dynamical system on an elementary statistical manifold, called assignment flow, for the contextual classification of metric data given on a graph. In the second part, I will explain recent work on parameter learning from data using a suitable linearization of assignment flows and low-rank exponential integration.
