About Book

"Boyd and Vandenberghe have written a beautiful book that I strongly recommend to everyone interested in optimization and computational mathematics: Convex Optimization is a very readable and inspiring introduction to this modern field of research...The book will be accessible not only to mathematicians but also to researchers and students who want to use convex optimization in applied fields like engineering, computer science, economics, statistics, or others. I recommend it as one of the best optimization textbooks that have appeared in the last years." Mathematical Methods of Operations Research

"...this concisely writen book is useful in many regards: as a primary textbook for convex optimization with engineering applications or as an alternate text for a more traditional course on linear or nonlinear optimization." Journal of the American Statistical Association, Hans-Jakob Luethi, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich

Book Description
Convex optimization problems arise frequently in many different fields. A comprehensive introduction to the subject, this book shows in detail how such problems can be solved numerically with great efficiency. The focus is on recognizing convex optimization problems and then finding the most appropriate technique for solving them. The text contains many worked examples and homework exercises and will appeal to students, researchers and practitioners in fields such as engineering, computer science, mathematics, statistics, finance, and economics.
