EE364b: Lecture Slides and Notes

Professor Stephen Boyd, Stanford University, Spring Quarter 2013–14

These slides and notes will change throughout the quarter. Unlike EE364a, where the lectures proceed linearly, the lectures for EE364b fall into natural groups, and there is much more freedom as to the order in which they are covered. We are unlikely to cover all of these topics in lecture.

Subgradient methods

Localization methods

Decomposition and distributed optimization

Proximal and operator splitting methods

Conjugate gradients

Nonconvex problems
