15-745 Discussion Leads


The three "Recent Research On Optimization" lectures in the syllabus refer to student led discussions of recent research papers selected from the list given below.

Each group picks a topic, and leads a 20 minute discussion in class on the three papers listed for the topic. Groups have two people, except for one group with three (because there is an odd number of students in the class).

There are several motivations for the in-class discussions.
