Convex Optimization by Prof. Joydeep Dutta, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, IIT Kanpur. Convex optimization is a subfield of mathematical optimization that studies the problem of minimizing convex functions over convex sets.Many classes of convex optimization problems admit polynomial-time algorithms, whereas mathematical optimization is in general NP-hard. The emphasis is to derive key al-gorithms for convex optimization from ﬁrst principles and to establish precise running time bounds in terms of the input length.

We also develop the method for recovering the coherency matrices corresponding to the smallest and largest values of the degree of polarization given the experimental data and a specified tolerance. J. Comput. We implement our methodology in version 1.1 of CVXPY, a popular Python-embedded DSL for convex optimization, and additionally implement differentiable layers for disciplined convex programs in PyTorch and TensorFlow 2.0. 0000017517 00000 n

Given the broad applicability of these methods, it is not possible for a single book to show the applications of these methods to all of them. Convex optimization has also found wide application in com-binatorial optimization and global optimization, where it is used to ﬁnd bounds on the optimal value, as well as approximate solutions. }����5J,�Yƕ��O�j�M5lz/iX�y�8]� f�%��i�a�����2�+�4�Kx��C�R*����ŗ�o��!�zyѿ\�)���Bz�X�>yi�d9�A cvxpylayers is a Python library for constructing differentiable convex optimization layers in PyTorch and TensorFlow using CVXPY. 0000003200 00000 n
