title Optimization
description <div><p>This module will interest you if you need to create mathematical models or if you use numerical software in industry, science, commerce or research. It's concerned with the skills needed to represent real optimization problems as mathematical models, and with techniques used in numerical analysis and operational research for solving these models by computer. Explaining how and when modelling and numerical techniques can be applied, the module covers solutions of non-linear equations; systems of linear and non-linear equations and mathematical modelling; linear and integer programming; and non-linear optimization for unconstrained and constrained minimization problems. Knowledge from OU level 2 study of calculus and matrices is assumed.</p></div>
