New Faculty: Sedi Bartz

This fall we are welcoming Dr. Sedi Bartz to the Department of Mathematical Sciences. Dr. Bartz’ research focuses on topics of nonlinear analysis and variational analysis. He¬†develops refinements of abstract convex analysis, and in turn,¬†transforms his refinements into a unifying language for phenomena in variational analysis which used to be considered quite apart. Dr. Bartz is also a specialist in classical convex analysis and monotone operator theory, theories which are among the most popular tools of modern optimization.

Dr. Bartz holds a Ph.D. from The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. He arrives to UML after a 3 year term as a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the University of British Columbia, Kelowna, Canada.
