Tutorials

Optimization, model fitting, and model comparison

I have been giving seminars, tutorials, and workshops on optimization (including BADS), model fitting, and model comparison at different labs and summer schools, for a duration that ranges from 20 minutes to 3 hours.

As a representative example, these are the slides I used at the CoSMo summer school in 2017 (pdf). This is a demo of several optimizers at work (link).

If you would like to invite me to give a seminar or tutorial about these topics, in person or in telepresence, please get in touch at luigi.acerbi@nyu.edu.
