Numerical Optimisation and Large-Scale Systems
This is the website for the course MA40050: Numerical Optimisation and Large-Scale Systems.
Prerequisites for the course are Analysis and Algebra as well as standard courses on Numerical Analysis. It is very helpful to know some Numerical Linear Algebra.
