Speakers Bio:(

Sariel Har-Peled did his phd in Tel-Aviv University under the supervision of Micha Sharir. After graduating in 99, he spent a year being a postdoc in Duke University. In 2000 he joined UIUC CS department, where he is currently a professor. In 2011, the AMS published his book on geometric approximation algorithms. He lives under the perpetual fear that the winter is coming.

Duration:60 Minutes
Building:E1 4
In this talk we would review some recent techniques developed to solve/approximate geometric problems in linear time. Such techniques include not only the (traditional) sampling approach, but also the extraction of coresets, and aggressive pruning and summarizing of data.
