Conic Optimization and Applications

Abstract


This course introduces modern developments of convex conic optimization. Topics to be covered include: modeling with conic optimization, the duality theory, applications of semidefinite programming (SDP), and the solution methods for conic optimization.

Specifically, we will consider conic optimization models such as linear programming, second order cone programming, and semidefinite programming. Applications include non-convex quadratic optimization, combinatorial and graphic problems. Finally, we will introduce the primal-dual interior point methods for solving conic optimization models.
