This hyper-textbook offers an introduction to optimization models and their applications, with emphasis on numerically tractable problems, such as linear or constrained least-squares optimization.

The image on the left is taken from an application of optimization to image denoising (J. Mairal, F. Bach, J. Ponce, G. Sapiro and A. Zisserman. Non-Local Sparse Models for Image Restoration. International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV), 2009).
