Optimization is the mathematical problem of finding a decision to achieve the best possible outcome while satisfying certain restrictions. Linear programs, conic linear programs and discrete optimization problems arise in a myriad of applications: electricity markets, airlines, logistics, public transport, international shipping, mining, finance, engineering, and data science. This course will provide an introduction to the basic mathematical theory, modelling techniques, computational methods and selected applications of linear, conic and discrete optimization.
