Course Objective |
Formation of theoretical knowledge and practical skills for solving optimization problems and constructing parallel algorithms for these problems. As a result of studying the student should be able to – construct extremal problems on sets of finite-dimensional spaces; – analyze convex sets, convex functions, problems of convex and linear programming; – solve optimization problems by means of parallel computing and algorithms. |
