Julian Hall awarded prize for best paper of 2015 in Computational Optimization and Applications
Julian Hall, in collaboration with his former PhD student Qi Huangfu, has been awarded the prize for the best paper of 2015 in Computational Optimization and Applications. The article describes the novel numerical linear algebra techniques required by their efficient parallel implementation of the dual revised simplex method.
Having also been awarded this prize for a 2005 paper (with Ken McKinnon) and a 2013 paper (with three researchers from Argonne National Labs), Julian is the only person to win more than once. With Jacek Gondzio having won the 2004 award, these successes reflect the standing of the Edinburgh group within the world of computational optimization.
