Diffusion models have been very successful in text-to-image generation, and generally excel in sampling from multimodal distributions. This tutorial aims to give a gentle introduction to diffusion models, with a running example to illustrate how to build, train and sample from a simple diffusion model from scratch.
Sum of squares relaxation is a powerful paradigm for solving polynomial optimization problems. This tutorial covers the numerical and computational aspects of solving sum of squares problems with a number example problems. Code examples for solving these problems are provided using the respective software packages in the Macaulay, Matlab, Julia and Python languages.
