My courses

  • Optim / Fall 2017 - Fundamentals of Optimisation

    Optimization is broadly applied to many technical and non-technical fields and  provides a powerful set of tools for the design and analysis of communication systems and signal processing algorithms. This course addresses basic concepts of optimization and will introduce EURECOM students to fundamental concepts as duality and KKT conditions, widely utilized optimization techniques as linear and geometric programming and unconstrained optimization algorithms,  but also to more advanced convex optimization techniques, which have been widely applied in wireless communications nowadays, such as second order cone programming and semidefinite programming.

    Special emphasis is devoted to exemplify applications of optimization techniques to telecommunications problems with the objective of  developing skills and background necessary to recognize, formulate, and solve optimization problems.

    Teaching and Learning Methods : Lectures supported by explicative exercises and dedicated exercise sessions

    Course Policies : Attendance to exercise session is not mandatory but highly recommended.
