You will learn about the different tools available for optimization in MATLAB. We demonstrate how you can use Optimization Toolbox™ and Global Optimization Toolbox to solve a wide variety of optimization problems. You will learn best practices for setting up and solving optimization problems, as well as how to speed up optimizations with parallel computing.

The seminar is open for both employees at Stockholm University and students!

Topics include:

  • Solving linear, nonlinear, and mixed-integer optimization problems in MATLAB
  • Finding better solutions to multiple minima and non-smooth problems using global optimization
  • Using symbolic math for setting up problems and automatically calculating gradients
  • Using parallel computing to speed up optimization problems
