    In January the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved the “Doomsday Clock" closer to midnight, stating: "Over the course of 2016, the global security landscape darkened as the international community failed to come effectively to grips with humanity’s most pressing existential threats, nuclear weapons and climate change."  This talk will present an objective overview of the nuclear arms race with an emphasis on the current escalating dangers. A brief sketch of how nuclear weapons work and some ironic lessons from history will be presented.

    Classical optimization methods are a vital resource in virtually every large-scale, complex human endeavor, from timely delivery of our mail to the planning of deep-space exploration missions. Because of this ubiquity, any technology which can provide substantial improvements in optimization efficiency or effectiveness has the potential for enormous practical impact.
