Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Basic concepts of continuous optimization, line search and trust region algorithms, Newton and (large-scale) Quasi-Newton methods, nonlinear conjugate gradient (NCG) methods, theory of (nonlinear) constrained optimization, linear programming, (sequential) quadratic programming, penalty and augmented Lagrangian methods, interior point methods.
Both theoretical background and practical numerical aspects (e.g. machine learning, python scikit-learn, (nonlinear) dimensionality reduction, etc) will be emphases.
