We are glad to announce a recent publication in the important journal

by two young members of ICTP: C.-D. Alecsa and I. Boros.

Their research presents new benchmark optimization algorithms based upon sequential operator splitting technique for some associated dynamical systems.

The article was written in collaboration with T. Pinta, former collaborator of ICTP, at present at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford.
