### Roger Fletcher FRS (University of Dundee and University of Edinburgh)

#### A concise review of methods and theory for nonlinear optimization and systems

*ERGO Optimization day: Tuesday 7 March 2006 at 12.00 and 16.00, JCMB 5215 and JCMB 3317*

##### Abstract

The main theme is to show how methods and theory for nonlinear
optimization can be developed concisely from the linear case, using only
techniques from the calculus of many variables, primarily the Taylor Series
Expansion, the Chain Rule and the Inverse Function Theorem. Some familiarity
with the general solution of Ax=b, when A is mxn with m < n is desirable,
plus some grasp of elementary concepts of vector spaces.
