Outline Activities

Optimization problem is the problem of finding the maximum or minimum of a given function over a given set, and is widely used in industry and daily life. My research interest are (i) to solve continuous optimization problems, e.g., convex optimization problems and semidefinite programming problems, (ii) to develop effective algorithms and software. In particular, I am strongly interested in research for solving nonlinear and nonconvex optimization problems by using convex optimization and semidefinite programming problems. Also, I research on the development of automotive engine control with industry-academia collaboration as IMI Joint Research.

Research

**Research Interests**

- We consider optimization modeling. In particular, we are interested in modeling with convex optimization.

Convex optimization is broadly used in various academic fields because it has a remarkable property that local solutions are also global.

We, however, often encounter ill-posedness in the resulting convex optimization problem. This means that the convex optimization problem

has no optimal solutions but, the objective value is finite. Then the computed solutions will be fragile and meaningless in practice.

We research how to model well-posed convex optimization from the various phenomena and/or to reveal why we encounter such an ill-posedness.

My research interest are (i) to solve continuous optimization problems, e.g., convex optimization problems and semidefinite programming problems, (ii) to develop effective algorithms and software. In particular, I am strongly interested in research for solving nonlinear and nonconvex optimization problems by using convex optimization and semidefinite programming problems. However, such problems have two difficulties: (1) the resulting convex optimization problems become too large-scale to handle, (2) the resulting problems become too degenerate to solve accurately. In addition, we often encounter phenomena that the theoretical results are completely different from computational results due to numerical errors, e.g., round-off errors in computation. Moreover, I am also interested in applications of optimization methods.
