An optimisation-based framework for non-classical Chebyshev approximation (ARC discovery project DP180100602).
26,300 per year (tax free)
In this project you will work on extending classical results in approximation theory by developing a methodology that lies at the crossroads between analysis, algebra and geometry. The classical Chebyshev alternation theorem on polynomial approximation can be studied from many perspectives: as an optimisation problem, or as an algebraic one for example. It has been generalised in many directions, but several generalisations have remained elusive, for instance piecewise linear approximation. The aim of this project will be to tackle some of these directions by developing new techniques, but also by combining existing ones in a new way. You will work on these challenging topics with an international team of researchers with a variety of mathematical expertise.

The registration for the third WoMBaT workshop (Workshop on Metric Bounds and Transversality) in Melbourne on the 29th November -1st of December in honour of Alex Kruger’s 65th birthday is now open
The new China-Australia Collaboration in Applied Optimization (CACAO) Memorandum of Understanding was launched on 4 December 2017 at Curtin University in Perth with the four participating universities:
- Federation University Australia
- Curtin University
- Shanghai University
- Chongqing Normal University
CACAO aims to develop a co-operative strategic relationship between the four institutions for the benefit of Australia and China. This includes collaboration on optimisation projects, jointly hosting of international conferences and workshops in applied optimisation, in particular, the biennial China-Australia Workshops on Applied Optimization, supporting the exchange of research staff and students, and fostering friendly relations between the two countries.
In accordance with the agreement, several Centre for Informatics and Applied Optimisation (CIAO) researchers have visited the School of Mathematical Sciences at Chongqing Normal University (CNU) during March to May 2018 to conduct joint research on optimisation with Chinese colleagues, give seminars for undergraduate and graduate students at CNU in mathematical optimisation and strengthen the links between the two universities. The visits were supported by the School of Mathematical Sciences at CNU.
Dr Musa Mammadov visited CNU from 23 March to 5 April. During the visit, he gave a series of lectures on “Outlier detection methodologies: theory and practice”. A/Prof Adil Baghirov visited CNU from 7 to 26 April. He gave a series of lectures on “Nonsmooth optimization models in machine learning”. A/Prof Alex Kruger visited CNU from 29 April to 10 May. He gave a series lectures on “Extremality and regularity”. Alex Kruger also met with CNU students enrolled in international exchange programs and spoke to them about FedUni and life in Australia.
Prof Zhiyou Wu, Dean of the School of Mathematical Sciences, CNU and Prof Fusheng Bai, CNU will visit CIAO in July 2018.
Preparations are currently under way for the 9th Australia-China Workshop on Optimization which will take place in Shanghai, China in 2019.
RMITOpt is taking the opportunity provided by the visit of Professor Hong-Kun, to hold a one day workshop on “Fixed points and Applications”. Prof. Hong Kun Xu is a distinguished professor at Hangzhou Dianzi University in Hangzhou, China.

WoMBaT2018 is the Third Workshop on Metric Bounds and Transversality: 29 November – 1 December 2018, Deakin University.
Each year the Centre for Informatics and Applied Optimisation (CIAO) holds a showcase and presentations of its research activities for the previous year. An invitation is extended to the 2018 CIAO Showcase to be held on Thursday 12 April 2018 with presentations to be held in T102 Lecture Theatre from 9.30am and displays in the Airport Lounge in T Building throughout the day.
Professor Leigh Sullivan, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Research & Innovation will launch the 2018 CIAO Showcase at 11.00am in the Airport Lounge and all staff and students are welcome to join us for morning tea following the launch and to view the display.
