graduate courses on linear, nonlinear, and convex optimization (with engineering applications) at Stanford and UCLA. We are able to cover most of the material, though not in detail, in a one quarter graduate course. A one semester course allows

Convex cone conic (nonnegative) combination of x1 and x2: any point of the form x =θ1x1+θ2x2 with θ1 ≥ 0, θ2 ≥ 0 0 x1 x2 convex cone: set that contains all conic combinations of points in the set Convex sets 2–5

of convex optimization problems, such as semidefinite programs and second-order cone programs, almost as easily as linear programs. The second development is the discovery that convex optimization problems (beyond least-squares and linear programs) ar

The function is said to be strongly quasi-concave if – is strongly quasi-convex. From the definition of convex function, quasi-convex function and strictly quasi-convex function, the following statements hold: Every strictly convex function is strong
