Student gets acquainted with optimization algorithms to solve problems of linear, integer linear and quadratic programming. Sensitivity analysis of simplex algorithm will be discussed. Also the basic methods for finding the extrema of nonlinear functions under constraints will be tought.
Course contents:
- Extrema of linear functions in more variables subject to linear
constraints - linear programming.
- Simplex algorithm, dual problem, shadow prices and sensitivity analysis.
- Integer linear programming.
- Extrema of nonlinear functions in more variables subject to (nonlinear
- Kuhn-Tucker conditions.
- Quadratic programming.
