# Awesome Speakers at TheoryFest Computational Thresholds Workshop Tomorrow

Guest post by Sam Hopkins I just got back from dinner with some of the great speakers who will be at our TheoryFest workshop tomorrow afternoon on computational thresholds for average-case problems, and I am very excited for what's coming! Since I didn't get much chance to introduce the speakers in my last post, and … Continue reading Awesome Speakers at TheoryFest Computational Thresholds Workshop Tomorrow

Guest post by Sam Hopkins TheoryFest is in full swing in Los Angeles! There is lots to be written about the wealth of STOC talks, invited papers, keynotes, and (maybe most importantly) the excellent food hall across the street which is swarming with theorists and mathematicians. But for now I want to bring to your attention the workshops planned … Continue reading Workshops at TheoryFest (including shameless advertisement)

# Clustering and Sum of Squares Proofs, Part 6

This is the 6th and final part of a series on clustering, Gaussian mixtures, and Sum of Squares (SoS) proofs. If you have not read them yet, I recommend starting with Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5. Also, if you find errors please mention them in the comments (or otherwise … Continue reading Clustering and Sum of Squares Proofs, Part 6

# Clustering and Sum of Squares Proofs, Part 5

This is part 5 of a continuing series on clustering, Gaussian mixtures, and Sum of Squares (SoS) proofs. If you have not read them yet, I recommend starting with Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4. Also, if you find errors please mention them in the comments (or otherwise get in touch with … Continue reading Clustering and Sum of Squares Proofs, Part 5

# Clustering and Sum of Squares Proofs, Part 1

Update (1/5/18): a pdf containing all six posts in this series is now available on my website. I am excited to (temporarily) join the Windows on Theory family as a guest blogger! This is the first post in a series which will appear on Windows on Theory in the coming weeks. The aim is to … Continue reading Clustering and Sum of Squares Proofs, Part 1
