Title: Exact clustering by semidefinite programming under the heterogeneous planted cluster model. Abstract: Clustering, or the sorting of data into groups of similar items, is a fundamental task in machine learning and statistical analysis. Until recently, most computational methods for clustering relied on heuristics with no theoretical guarantee ensuring that clusters present in the data […]

Title: Mean field models for thin film droplet coarsening Abstract: A thin liquid film coating a solid substrate is unstable and the late stage morphology is essentially quasiequilibrium droplets connected by an ultra thin film. Droplets exchange mass and coarsening occurs — the total number of droplets N(t) decreases while the average size of droplets […]
