Good knowledge of advanced calculus, linear algebra, basic probability, and basic programming at the level of variables, loops, and functions is required. Background in (mathematical) analysis and measure-theoretic probability theory is helpful but not necessary.
We will use Convex Optimization by Boyd and Vandenberghe and the draft of Large-Scale Convex Optimization via Monotone Operators by Ryu and Yin. You will have access to free (legal) electronic copies of the books, so there is no need to purchase them.
