EE364a: Reading Assignments

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

  1. By end of 1st week (4/7/17): 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 (4/14/17): Chapter 2 and a first pass over Chapter 3.

  3. By end of 3rd week (4/21/17): Chapters 3 and 4. After that, you can skim the documentation for CVX*,

  4. By the end of 4th week (4/28/17): Chapter 5.

  5. By end of 5th week (5/5/17): Chapters 6 and 7.

  6. By end of 6th week (5/12/17): Chapter 8 and additional lecture slides on stochastic programming.

  7. By end of 7th week (5/19/17): Appendix C and Chapter 9.

  8. By end of 8th week (5/26/17): 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*, skipping only the very driest sections. In particular, we expect you to know the DCP rules.
