PhD Defence Joran van Apeldoorn

Everyone is welcome to attend the public defence of Joran van Apeldoorn,

of his thesis 'A Quantum View on Convex Optimization'.

The defence is at 14:00 in the Agnietenkapel, Oudezijds Voorburgwal 229, Amsterdam.

Joran van Apeldoorn investigated whether quantum computers can solve convex optimisation problems faster. To answer this question, he considered a few different types of problems encountered in convex optimisation, including linear programming and semidefinite programming.

Van Apeldoorn will defend his thesis A Quantum View on Convex Optimization at the University of Amsterdam. His PhD research was supervised by Prof. Ronald de Wolf and Prof. Monique Laurent.

When: Thursday February 6th, 2020
