Lecture Notes 7: Convex Optimization 1 Convex functions Convex functions are of crucial importance in optimization-based data analysis because they can be e ciently minimized. The aim of this course is to analyze (SP) using dynamic programming and con- jugate duality. Basics of convex analysis. When f(x) is convex, derive g(t) is convex by checking the de nition. Then Ehis a convex function of Nand (SP) is a convex stochastic optimization problem on the space of adapted processes.

Given a convex fcn g\(x\) and a scalar a, {x: g\(x\)<=a} is convex. 2: Convex sets. The lecture notes will be posted on this website.

The lecture notes of the previous winter semester are already available online, but the notes will be completely revised. Con-versely, for any x 0;x 1, consider g(t) = f(x 0 + t(x 1 x 0)) and let t= 0 and t= 1.

They deal with the third part of that course, and is about nonlinear optimization.Just as the ﬁrst parts of MAT-INF2360, this third part also has its roots in linear algebra.

Introduction and Deﬁnitions This set of lecture notes considers convex op-timization problems, numerical optimization problems of the form minimize f(x) subject to x∈ C, (2.1.1) where fis a convex function and Cis a convex set. In this section we introduce the concept of convexity and then discuss norms, which are convex functions that are often used to design convex cost functions when tting The data of optimization problems of real world origin typically is uncertain - not known exactly when the problem is solved.
