Abstract: Convex Optimization has been recognized as a powerful tool for solving a wide range of scientific and engineering problems, if the problem of interest can be advisably formulated into a convex optimization problem. A number of endeavors of using convex optimization can be extensively seen in applications to communications engineering and signal processing over the last decade, as we have been successfully applying convex optimization to solving various cutting edge challenging problems in multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications and image/signal processing over the last 10 years. In this talk, we will give a comprehensive introduction to convex optimization and some of our breakthroughs in handling challenging problems in MIMO communications, hyperspectral image analysis (for remote sensing applications), and biomedical image analysis (for cancer detection). These successful endeavors further motivate the application of convex optimization to various new interdisciplinary science and engineering problems.
