Chair of Applied Mathematics, Saarland University, Germany



Bachelor's thesis, Master's thesis or Staatsexamen:

If you are interested in writing your theses in the area of mathematical optimization or related topics, please contact Peter Ochs by eMail (German or English). In the eMail, please mention your interests and list the relevant courses that you have taken.

Possible topics include but are not limited to the following ones: theoretical or practical relations between optimization algorithms for smooth, non-smooth, convex, or non-convex optimization problems; applications of continuous optimization algorithms in computer vision, machine learning, image processing/analysis, or other linear or non-linear inverse problems; non-smooth analysis; convex analysis; bilevel optimization; parameter optimization; and many more.
