CSC466H1: Numerical Methods for Optimization Problems


Numerical methods for unconstrained optimization problems, in particular line search methods and trust region methods. Topics include steepest descent, Newton's method, quasi-Newton methods, conjugate gradient methods and techniques for large problems. This course will normally be offered every other year.


NOTE: Students not enrolled in the Computer Science Major or Specialist program at the FAS, UTM, or UTSC, or the Data Science Specialist at FAS, are limited to a maximum of three 300-/400-level CSC/ECE half-courses.
