About

This basic course in optimization treats the most relevant mathematical
principles that we use in analysing and solving continuous optimization
problems. The main theoretical goal is that you will learn parts of the
theory of optimality, duality, and convexity, and the connections
between them. Using this, you will be able to analyze many kinds of
optimization problems, classify them, and give guidelines for how to
tackle them in practice. This is the more practical goal in an otherwise
more theoretical course.
