EE364a: Reading Assignments

Unless otherwise noted, all reading assignments are from the textbook.

  1. By end of 1st week (1/9/19): Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 (only skim 2.4.2, 2.5, 2.6.2 and 2.6.3).

  2. By end of 2nd week (1/16/19): Chapter 2 and a first pass over Chapter 3.

  3. By end of 3rd week (1/25/19): Chapters 3 and 4. After that, you can skim the documentation for CVX*.

  4. By the end of 4th week (2/01/19): Chapter 5.

  5. By end of 5th week (2/8/19): Chapters 6 and 7.

  6. By end of 6th week (2/15/19): Chapter 8 and additional lecture slides on stochastic programming.

  7. By end of 7th week (2/22/19): Appendix C and Chapter 9.

  8. By end of 8th week (2/29/19): Chapters 10 and 11.

That finishes up the formal reading assignments. We recommend that you read (or re-read) sections of the book that you may have missed (such as appendices A and B), or sections that still confuse you. We also recommend that you re-read the documentation for CVX*, CVX Users’ Guide, skipping only the very driest sections. In particular, we expect you to know the DCP rules.
