The Research Group on Optimization and Variational Analysis aims to develop the theory and applications of nonsmooth and variational analysis, focusing on optimization and real-world applications. Our main fields of interest are:

  • Differential Inclusions

  • Nonsmooth Analysis

  • Stochastic Differential Equations

  • Convex Analysis

  • Continuous Optimization

  • Stochastic Optimization

  • Bilevel optimization and game theory
