Optimization is a mathematical discipline that concerns the finding of minima and maxima of functions, subject to so-called constraints. ORIE faculty work on semi-definite programming, second-order cone programming, and large-scale multi-period stochastic optimization problems, in addition to convex analysis and non-smooth optimization—areas beyond the realm of traditional calculus.
