Synopsis:

Nonlinear optimization problems find their application in may areas of applied mathematics. The lecture covers the

basics of mathematical programming theory with emphasis on convex optimization and basic methods for unconstrained

and constrained optimization. The lecture is supplemented by illustrative examples.

Requirements:
Syllabus of lectures:

1. Mathematical programming: introduction, overview of basic optimization problems, linear and nonlinear

programming, weak and strong Lagrange duality,

2. Summary of the required mathematical apparatus: pseudo-inverse matrix, least squares method, conjugate gradient

method

3. Convex sets and functions, basic properties and examples, operations preserving convexity

4. Unconstrained optimization problems

5. Constrained optimization tasks

6. Algorithms unconstrained optimization problems
