Production and Quantitative Methods
Prof. Ankur Sinha
Course Description & Objectives
The course introduces students to the fundamentals of non-linear optimization and then builds on it to introduce other advanced topics in the area of optimization. It enables students to enhance their understanding of optimization methods that may be suitable for problems with complexities such as non-linearity, non-convexity, discontinuity and non-differentiability.
Around 50% of the course focuses on the conventional techniques for solving non-linear optimization problems. 20% of the course focuses on non-traditional optimization techniques. Remaining 30% of the course discusses extensions of single objective optimization to multiobjective optimization, bilevel optimization and robust optimization.
