## Contents

Basics of convex geometry and duality theory, numerical methods such as simplex methods, dual simplex methods or inner-point methods. Statements on the complexity of the procedures.

## Qualification Goals

Unchecked automatic translation:
The students shall

• learn the structural basics of linear optimization problems in order to understand the basic operation of the methods,
• recognize the importance of central concepts, for example from duality theory, for the discussion of optimization problems,
• learn to select problem-adapted procedures,
• acquire the basic knowledge for advanced modules on general optimization problems,
• practice mathematical working methods (development of mathematical intuition and its formal justification, training of the ability to abstract, proof techniques),
• improve their oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.

## Prerequisites

Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Keine. Empfohlen werden die Kompetenzen, die in den Basismodulen Lineare Algebra I und Analysis I bzw. Grundlagen der linearen Algebra und Grundlagen der Analysis vermittelt werden.
