Tuesday 10:45-12:05pm MEB 3485 (Flux conference Room)
This seminar will focus on distributed linear algebra algorithms. Attendees will read and discuss papers on core large-scale Linear Algebra algorithms such as dense matrix representations, matrix factorizations, singular value decomposition etc. Attendees will typically discuss one paper each week.
There is no particular theme this year. This is primarily from a list of recent papers that I have been meaning to read. Hopefully, there is something of interest to everyone. Some for this papers are fairly detailed, so I will mark these as long. If you select one of these, expect to take 2 weeks to cover the paper. You can choose only one paper in this case.
This is the schedule. Underneath, you will find the tentative list of papers. Pick 1-2 papers (or more), along with preferred dates for presentation and email me. I will update the schedule.
