## Riemannian optimization

## Parametric linear programming

- Author list

- All equations and math symbols should be italicized. Please use latex equations or equation editor to add equations/math symbols throughout the Wiki.

- Theory, methodology, and/or algorithmic discussion

- Please use equation editor for all math symbols and equations. Refer https://optimization.cbe.cornell.edu/index.php?title=Duality to see how the equations/symbols are typed and aligned.
- Explain what zj means. It's unclear from the current text.

- At least one numerical example

- Row matrices should also be in square brackets. Use equation editor to fix these.

## Evolutionary algorithms

- Theory, methodology, and/or algorithmic discussion

- Several words and phrases are capitalized. Please use the sentence case throughout the wiki.

- References

- Some resources are inconsistent (missing publishing year, only a link and title, etc)

## Alternating direction method of multipliers

- Theory, methodology, and/or algorithmic discussion

- Please use equation editor/Latex equations for all math symbols and equations.
- Many words are capitalized in the text. Please use the sentence case throughout the Wiki.
- Please use the symbol * as superscript. It should look like x* and y*.

## Sequential linear programming

- Theory, methodology, and/or algorithmic discussion

- Please include more details of how the SLP problem is formulated at the beginning of the subsection.

- At least one numerical example

- Please avoid using asterisks for representing multiplication.

## Linear complementarity problem

## Monte Carlo for machine learning applications

- Conclusion

- Please correct the last sentence “there could be other optimized methods emerge”

## Stochastic variance reduced gradient

- Theory, methodology, and/or algorithmic discussion

- Please avoid pronouns such as “we” and “us”. This goes for all the sections.

## Convex optimization in classification problems

- Author list

- Please add the names of the authors without NetIDs.

- Introduction

- The introduction of classification problems has not been included. Please expand the section by providing more context about the topic.
- Please add references to support the content.
- The statement of “in a minimization problem, all objective and constraint functions are convex” without specifying convex optimization problems is misleading. Please double check the writing and update if necessary.

- Theory, methodology, and/or algorithmic discussion

- It is recommended to put “Definition” and “Properties and Benefits” under a new section “Theory” and also add a “Classification Problems” subsection.
- Please emphasize the combination of convex optimization and classification problems.

- At least one numerical example

- Please formulate a convex optimization problem for the classification problem and solve it with a solver.
- The details of the algorithm are expected.

- References

- Please avoid citing pages from Wikipedia. Please try to add journal articles or books for references.

## Particle swarm optimization

## Weighted metric method

- Introduction

- Please use the sentence case throughout the wiki. Many words/phrases are capitalized in the current version.

- Applications

- The complete reference from the image caption can be removed since there’s already a citation present.

## Support vector clustering

- Introduction

- Please place references after the period at the end of each sentence. This goes for all the sections in the wiki.

- Theory, methodology, and/or algorithmic discussion

- Please use abbreviations after they have been introduced (e.g., “SVC algorithm” instead of “support vector clustering algorithm”).

- References

- Please use the same reference style for each reference.

## Quantum computing for optimization

- Theory, methodology, and/or algorithmic discussion

- Quantum approximate optimization algorithms are scarce with barely introduced concepts and math notation.

## Model predictive control

- At least one numerical example

- “Gaussian” should be capitalized.

## Ellipsoid method

- References

- References are not linked in the text. Please consider having the references as this Wiki page: https://optimization.cbe.cornell.edu/index.php?title=Simplex_algorithm
