Python Fundamentals with Data Analysis and Visualization

Presenter: Dustin Allen, NM EPSCoR

Python is a high-level programming language that is leveraged in a wide range of disciplines and fields. This webinar training introduces Python basics and will also familiarize those in attendance with its powerful capabilities for data analysis and visualization. It will be taught using live coding and the audience is encouraged to follow along on their systems. All the required files are included in the resources section below.

April 2021 Software Carpentry

Software Carpentry aims to help researchers get their work done in less time and with less pain by teaching them basic research computing skills. This hands-on workshop will cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.

Exploiting Symmetry in Large-Scale Optimization and Control

Abstract: This talk will present theoretical and algorithmic results on exploiting symmetry to reduce the computational complexity large-scale control and optimization problems. First, we will show how symmetry can be used to reduce the memory complexity of explicit solutions of optimization problems. Second, we will show how symmetry can be used to reduce the memory and computational complexity of an alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) optimization algorithm.
