The goal of this project is to provide the greater scientific and engineering community with a useful and relevant resource on computational 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 on this site are all written by teams of students and are reviewed by the course instructor and the TAs. Through this collaboration, the instructor and the TAs serve as managing editors, selecting broad threads for the text and suggesting references. Students here take an active role in their education by selecting which material in their assigned section is most useful and deciding on the presentation approach.
If you have any comments or suggestions on this open textbook, please contact Prof. Fengqi You.
