This short course will cover a basic introduction to theory and algorithms for global optimization. It will be divided into the following sub-topics:
Basic definitions; problems which are NOT global optimization ones (a quick overview of convex optimization).
Classical and recent heuristic algorithms for large-scale global optimization.
Exact methods - Branch & Bound approaches for global optimization.
Heuristic methods for black box, expensive functions.
