Title:     Variational analysis with smooth substructure
Time:      Sunday, January 15, 2012, at  13:30 
Place:     Room 814, Amado Mathematics Building
Abstract:  Nonsmoothness arises naturally in many applications, but not
           pathologically so. On the contrary, nonsmooth problems often
           possess rich underlying structure waiting to be exploited. I
           will discuss examples of such structures, focusing, in
           particular, on stratifications (Tame Variational Analysis)
           and partial smoothness.
Remark:     Please note unusual time.  Hamel's lecture will take place
           at 14:30 as previously announced.
