Citation for: 2012 Paul Y. Tseng Memorial Lectureship in Continuous Optimization

Yinyu Ye

Yinyu Ye has been at the forefront of continuous optimization and in particular research into interior-point methods for over 20 years. His accomplishments span the breadth of optimization including fundamental theoretical contributions into interior-point methods; the development of semi-definite programming software; and the promotion of novel applications of optimizations in economic markets and distance geometry.

In addition, Yinyu Ye has played a pivotal role in promoting optimization research in the Asia-Pacific region. He was a founding editor of the Pacific Journal of Optimization and he has held numerous honorary appointments at Chinese Universities, where he regularly teaches popular tutorial lectures and supervises students.
