Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Basic concepts of continuous optimisation, line search algorithms, higher order algorithms (Newton, Quasi-Newton), constrained optimisation, SQP method, convex optimization.

Assessment and permitted materials

The final grade is a combination between the result of the final exam and the grade received for the implementations of the algorithmic problems which will accompany the lecture.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

For attending the final exam at least half of the implementation problems have to be solved.

Examination topics

The entire content of the lecture.
