About Yin Tat Lee's Work

My research aims to develop general-purpose optimization algorithms that are optimal in theory and efficient in practice. I combine ideas from continuous and discrete mathematics to substantially advance state-of-the-art algorithms that tackle foundational problems in computer science and optimization, such as the maximum flow problem and linear programming. In the future, I plan to study linear algebraic data structures as another step forward in my ultimate quest to discover a universally efficient algorithm for solving convex optimization.
