This textbook offers graduate students a concise introduction to the classic notions of convex optimization. Written in a highly accessible style and including numerous examples and illustrations, it presents everything readers need to know about convexity and convex optimization.
Convex optimization is a subfield of mathematical optimization that studies the problem of minimizing convex functions over convex sets. Many classes of convex optimization problems admit polynomial-time algorithms,  whereas mathematical optimization is in general NP-hard. Convex optimization has applications in a wide range of disciplines, such as automatic control systems , estimation and signal processing , communications and networks, electronic circuit design ,  data analysis and modeling, finance , statistics optimal experimental design ,  and structural optimization , where the approximation concept has proven to be efficient. A convex optimization problem is an optimization problem in which the objective function is a convex function and the feasible set is a convex set.
They play a key role in these research areas because most real-world nonconvex programs are DC programs. Convex Analysis and Optimization. Bertsekas with Angelia Nedic and Asuman E. It relies on rigorous mathematical analysis, but also aims at an intuitive exposition that makes use … uous Optimization problems. This book, developed through class instruction at MIT over the last 15 years, provides an accessible, concise, and intuitive presentation of algorithms for solving convex optimization problems. The second edition has been brought up to date and continues to develop a coherent and rigorous theory of deterministic global optimization, highlighting the essential role of convex analysis. At the same time, the broad success of key monographs on general variational analysis by Clarke, Ledyaev, Stern.
Bertsekas with Angelia Nedic and Asuman E. Aside from a thorough account of convex analysis and optimization, the book aims to restructure the theory of the subject, by introducing several novel unifying lines of analysis, including: A unified development of minimax theory and constrained optimization duality as special cases of duality between two simple geometrical problems. A unified development of conditions for existence of solutions of convex optimization problems, conditions for the minimax equality to hold, and conditions for the absence of a duality gap in constrained optimization. A unification of the major constraint qualifications allowing the use of Lagrange multipliers for nonconvex constrained optimization, using the notion of constraint pseudonormality and an enhanced form of the Fritz John necessary optimality conditions. From the review by Panos Pardalos Optimization Methods and Sofware, : "The book's treatment of convexity theory is rigorous, insightful, and quite comprehensive, with all major aspects of the subject receiving substantial treatment.

Office Hour: Make appointment through email. This course is focused on learning to recognize, understand, analyze, and solve unconstrained and constrained convex optimization problems arising in engineering fields. Courtesy warning: The course is intended for students who wish to gain an in-depth understanding of the convex analysis, modern disciplined convex programming, and hence places emphasis on theory and rigorous proofs. Students are expected to have strong knowledge of linear algebra, real analysis, and multivariate calculus. Past Lecture Notes.
