Synopsis:

Convex optimization has the application in many areas of natural sciences. The lecture includes the basics of the theory convex analysis and develops algorithms for unconstrained optimization and optimization with equality-constraints. The duality theory is studied and interior point method is formulated to be applied to inequality-constraint problems.

Requirements:
