Optimization Techniques in MATLAB

MATLAB is an integrated technical computing environment from the MathWorks that combines array-based numeric computation, advanced graphics and visualization, and a high-level programming language. Separately licensed toolboxes provide additional domain-specific functionality.

The topics of this workshop include:

  • Running optimization problems in MATLAB
  • Specifying objective functions
  • Specifying constraints
  • Choosing solvers and algorithms
  • Evaluating results and improving performance
  • Using global optimization methods
  • Using parallel computing to speed up optimizations
