Unconstrained Optimization

The purpose of this course is to develop mathematical, modeling, and computational skills for optimization. The emphasis in this video is mathematical.

This video introduces the first-order necessary condition (first derivative test), the second-order necessary condition (second derivative test), and sufficient conditions for a local minimum. Numerous examples are worked to illustrate how to use the conditions and see when they yield useful information and when they do not.
