Optimization (Summer term 2017)

We will give with this lecture an introduction to basics of optimization theory in infinite dimensional spaces and numerical solution techniques for solving contained/unconstrained minimization problems. Basic knowledge about functional analytic tools and techniques from optimization are required.


  • One exercises sheet per week;
  • Minimum 50 % of the exercises required for participating at the final exam.

Final exam: Thursday, 20th of July 2017
You are allowed to prepare 1 handwritten sheet DIN A4 (2 pages) for the exam.

Actual exercise sheet: Exercises


    V. Barbu & Th. Precupanu, Convexity and optimization in Banach spaces
    I. Ekeland & R. Teman, Convex analysis and variational problems
    H. Bauschke & P. Combettes, Convex analysis and monotone operator theory in Hilbert spaces
