My current topic of research is in solving a specific non-smooth, non-convex, constrained optimisation problem. This project is in collaberation with Siemens and is supervised by Raphael Hauser.
Siemens have developed software capable of approximating the efficiency of one of their steam turbines given its design. This software may be thought of as an objective function in an optimisation problem. The problem is that this objective function has a discontinuous first derivative, making it impossible for a standard smooth solver to converge to a locally optimal design. In this project, we aim to construct a non-smooth solver capable of robustly converging to a locally optimal design in reasonable time.
