Organizer: Ahmad Abdi
The overall aim this term (and possibly the next) is to go through the lattice theory and convex geometry background needed to digest the recent exciting result by Reis and Rothvoss on a faster algorithm for integer programming.
If you have not volunteered this term, please consider doing so by emailing the organizer. Your talk does not have to be necessarily aligned with the theme, though this would be helpful. Anything interesting to an Optimization audience will do.
