En résumé

This course blends optimization theory and computation and its teachings can be applied to modern data analytics, economics, and engineering. Organized across four modules, it takes learners through basic concepts, models, and algorithms in linear optimization, convex optimization, and integer optimization. 

The first module of the course is a general overview of key concepts in linear algebra, calculus, and optimization. The second module of the course is on linear optimization, covering modeling techniques with many applications, basic polyhedral theory, simplex method, and duality theory. The third module is on convex conic optimization, which is a significant generalization of linear optimization. The fourth and final module focuses on integer optimization, which augments the previously covered optimization models with the flexibility of integer decision variables.

  • Modeling skills for formulating various analytics problems as linear, convex nonlinear, and integer optimization problems.
  • Basic optimization theory including duality theory and convexity theory, which will provide a deeper understanding of not only how to formulate an optimization model, but also when and why.
  • Fundamental algorithmic schemes for solving linear, nonlinear, and integer optimization problems.
  • Computational skills for implementing and solving an optimization problem using modern optimization modeling language and solvers.

La plateforme

EdX est une plateforme d'apprentissage en ligne (dite FLOT ou MOOC). Elle héberge et met gratuitement à disposition des cours en ligne de niveau universitaire à travers le monde entier. Elle mène également des recherches sur l'apprentissage en ligne et la façon dont les utilisateurs utilisent celle-ci. Elle est à but non lucratif et la plateforme utilise un logiciel open source.

EdX a été fondée par le Massachusetts Institute of Technology et par l'université Harvard en mai 2012. En 2014, environ 50 écoles, associations et organisations internationales offrent ou projettent d'offrir des cours sur EdX. En juillet 2014, elle avait plus de 2,5 millions d'utilisateurs suivant plus de 200 cours en ligne.

Les deux universités américaines qui financent la plateforme ont investi 60 millions USD dans son développement. La plateforme France Université Numérique utilise la technologie openedX, supportée par Google.
