The goal of this project is to provide the greater scientific and engineering community with a useful and relevant resource on optimization methods and applications. This project is being constructed by the instructor (Prof. Fengqi You), TAs and students of "SysEn 6800/5800: Computational Optimization" course at Cornell University. Initial construction of this resource began in Fall 2020, and will continue in future years with other groups of students.
The articles in this page are all written by teams of students, and are reviewed by the course instructor and the TAs. Using this approach, the instructor and the TAs act as managing editors, selecting broad threads for the text and suggesting references. In contrast to other courses, the students take an active role in their education by selecting which material in their assigned section is most useful and decide on the presentation approach.
If you have any comments or suggestions on this open textbook, please contact Prof. Fengqi You.
