Mathematical optimization is a problem that takes the following form (1) where is a vector containing all the variables of the problem (2) The...

The above lecture is brought to you by Skillshare. In a previous post of mine, we introduced weak alternatives. As a small reminder, consider the following...

Let us say we are interested in checking whether system hereby defined as (1) is feasible or not. In other words, could we find a...

In this lecture, we talk about Perturbation and Sensitivity Analysis. But what does that mean ? Well, consider our good old looking optimization problem that looks...

In this lecture, we talk about equivalent reformulations, that are reformulations done on the initial problem of the form (1) A very interesting question is...

In a previous post of mine, I talked about CVXOPT Programming. In this one, we’ll introduce cone programming. So first things first. Cone programming is a...

Before I talk about CVXOPT programming, I’m assuming that you know what a convex optimization (or at least an optimization) problem is. If you don’t, it’s...
