OVERVIEW

Optimization is the discipline that concerns the investigation of the algorithms for searching the points of minimum or maximum of cost functions and functionals.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The goal is that of making the students achieve the capacity modeling dynamic systems and solving control problems involving the optimization of some performance index.
