Title: Compressive Sensing and Nonlinear PDE

Abstract: I will talk about two numerical methods for accelerating the convergence of the fixed point method associated with a nonlinear and/or degenerate elliptic partial differential equation. The first method is linearly stable, while the second is provably convergent in the viscosity solution sense. In practice, the methods converge at a root complexity vs. the standard fixed point method. Numerical examples are shown for Isaacs' equation, Pucci's equations, the Monge-Ampere equation, and the infinity Laplacian.
