  Efficient differentiable programming in a functional array-processing language
Shaikhha A., Fitzgibbon A., Vytiniotis D., Peyton Jones S.  Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages 3(ICFP): 1-30, 2019. Type: Article

Differentiable programming, or automatic differentiation, is a powerful technique in many fields, including dynamic systems, machine learning, and computer vision, mainly for solving nonlinear problems. Forward (versus reverse) differentiation bas...

  randUTV: a blocked randomized algorithm for computing a rank-revealing UTV factorization
Martinsson P., Quintana-Ortí G., Heavner N.  ACM Transactions on Mathematical Software 45(1): 1-26, 2019. Type: Article

Matrix singular value decomposition (SVD) has broad applications in both computational linear algebra and data analysis. Robust SVD algorithms and sophisticated software implementations have been available in the literature for decades. However, e...

  Incomplete SMT techniques for solving non-linear formulas over the integers
Borralleras C., Larraz D., Rodríguez-Carbonell E., Oliveras A., Rubio A.  ACM Transactions on Computational Logic 20(4): 1-36, 2019. Type: Article

It is well known that nonlinear integer arithmetic is undecidable due to a negative answer to Hilbert’s tenth problem. Still, constraint solving over nonlinear integer polynomials has attracted considerable attention because of the wide rang...

   An introduction to compressed sensing
Vidyasagar M.,  SIAM, Philadelphia, PA, 2020. 341 pp. Type: Book (978-1-611976-11-3)

Compressed sensing has emerged as a key technology in the signal processing area. This disruptive technique has found applications in many real-life problems. We know from the classical Nyquist-Shannon theorem that a signal can be recovered perfec...

  Computing the geometric intersection number of curves
Despré V., Lazarus F.  Journal of the ACM 66(6): 1-49, 2019. Type: Article

More than a century ago, Poincaré asked for a procedure to determine if a closed curve γ on a compact surface S could be contracted to a point, and suggested a computationally expensive method. Dehn proposed a simpler ...

  Learning and decision-making from rank data
Xia L.,  Morgan&Claypool Publishers, San Rafael, CA, 2019. 160 pp. Type: Book (978-1-681734-40-8)

Due to the proliferation of Internet devices and connections, data is generated at an extreme speed. Right now, zettabytes of data are generated daily. How to make meaning out of mostly unstructured data is very difficult. Among these vast amounts...
