Aims of the study 
The study of the basic methods for solving classical problems. Increase the level of professional competence in solving optimization problems. Further development of students’ skills in abstract mathematical thinking and skills applies it to a specific task, increasing their mathematical culture. As a result of the study, the student should be able to: – find the minimum and maximum points for functions defined on finitedimensional spaces; – to build models of extremal problems in finitedimensional spaces; – with the aid of differential convexity criteria, to check whether a given function is convex; – the use of optimality conditions and the KuhnTucker criterion for solving convex programming problems; – use the simplex method for solving linear programming problems; – the use of optimality conditions of the first and second order for solving nonlinear programming problems.
