Principles of Optimization (Math 364)
Course Overview
Optimization is used to model and solve problems from
business, engineering, sciences, sports, and several other
areas. This course will give an introduction to linear
optimization and to integer linear optimization. Emphasis
will be given to model formulation, basic theory behind
solution techniques and algorithms, and to the use of
modeling software. Topics covered will include linear
programming formulations, the simplex algorithm, duality,
and integer programming formulations. A modeling software
(such as AMPL) will be introduced.
Students will learn how to create models using this tool
and to interpret the solutions. The targeted audience is
junior or senior undergraduate students. A basic
background in linear algebra (Math 220) will be required to
follow the contents of the course.
