We give an efficient algorithm for computing a Cournot equilibrium when the producers are confined to integers, the inverse demand function is linear, and costs are quadratic. The method also…

Abstract: It is extremely important in many application domains to have transparency in predictive modeling. Domain experts do not tend to prefer "black…

The study of first-order methods has largely dominated research in continuous optimization for the last decade, yet still the range of problems for which optimal first-order methods have been…

The behaviour of any physical system is governed by its dynamical equations. Much of physics is concerned with discovering these dynamical equations and understanding their implications. It is…
