The purpose of this course is to develop mathematical, modeling, and computational skills for optimization. The emphases in this video are modeling and computational.
This video shows how to formulate optimization problems by 1) defining the decision variables, 2) defining the objective, and 3) defining the constraints. After watching this video, you should be comfortable recognizing simple optimization problems and converting them to mathematical form.
