Description: Convex optimization problems arise in communication, system theory, VLSI, CAD, finance, inventory, network optimization, computer vision, learning, statistics, etc., even though oftentimes convexity may be hidden and unrecognized. Recent advances in interior-point methodology have made it much easier to solve these problems and various solvers are now available. This course will introduce the basic theory and algorithms for convex optimization, as well as its many applications to computer science, engineering, management science and statistics. Biennial; Offered in Odd Years. Recommended Prerequisite(s): CAAM 335 and MATH 321.
