Empirical Tensor Train Approximation in Optimal Control
Abstract: We display two approaches to solve finite horizon optimal control problems. First we solve the Bellman equation numerically by employing the Policy Iteration algorithm. Second, we introduce a semiglobal optimal control problem and use open loop methods on a feedback level. To overcome computational infeasability we use tensor trains and multi-polynomials, together with high-dimensional quadrature, e.g. Monte-Carlo. By controlling a destabilized version of viscous Burgers and a diffusion equation with unstable reaction term numerical evidence is given.

How to efficiently pre-process unstructured data for process mining?
Abstract: Process mining is a promising approach to find additional patterns in data and in that way to give new insights into the data. The challenge of process mining on unstructured data is to efficiently pre-process the data in a way that process mining can give additional insights. If the data is not clustered appropriately, the result might be distorted (i.e., there is a correlation between clustering and the discovered process model). This talk presents approaches for change point detection and encodings allowing to divide the pre-processed data representative for process mining.

Recent Advances in Graph Partitioning for Increasing the Performance of Large-Scale Distributed Graph Processing
Abstract: Graph-structured data is found in various domains such as social networks, websites, and recommendation networks. To analyze large graphs and gain high-level insights, distributed graph processing frameworks such as Spark/GraphX and Giraph have been established. For distributed processing, the graph needs to be split into multiple partitions, while the cut size and balancing of the partitions need to be optimized. This problem is known as graph partitioning.
In this talk, I will summarize recent advances of graph partitioning and introduce important new concepts that have been developed in my group. First, two novel techniques that reduce the memory footprint of graph partitioning while maintaining a high partitioning quality: Hybrid Edge Partitioning and Two-Phase Streaming. Second, EASE, a framework for optimizing the choice of partitioning technique for a given graph and processing algorithm. EASE is based on machine learning and achieves better performance than a manual partitioner selection based on heuristics. Finally, I will provide an outlook on open problems.

Insights into turbulence from fully resolved simulations
Abstract: Fluid turbulence plays an important role in nature and engineering processes. Despite its importance, many aspects still remain to be understood. From a physics perspective, one challenge is to derive theories of turbulence which allow us to understand and predict nontrivial statistical features of turbulence such as the frequent occurrence of extreme events. Fully resolved turbulence simulations provide a useful framework to investigate the spatio-temporal properties of turbulence. In this presentation, I will discuss some recent works which demonstrate how theoretical modeling and simulations can be combined to better understand fundamental aspects of turbulence.
