This course will focus on fundamental subjects in convexity, duality, and convex optimization algorithms. The aim of this course is to develop the core analytical and algorithmic issues of continuous optimization. At the end of this course it teaches duality, and saddle point theory using a handful of unifying principles that can be easily visualized and readily understood.
This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.
Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.
Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:
- Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
- Show it to prove your success
