Learning outcomes

In this course we will provide an introduction to Convex Analysis in finite and infinite-dimensional spaces. We will show also some applications to problems of nonlinear optimizations and control theory arising from physics and economics. At the end of the course, the student should be able to: - understand the deep link between this and the previous courses (in particular, Functional Analysis); - use the main tools of convex analysis to solve convex optimization problems; - formalize and analyze simple control system coming from physical and economics models, in the framework of optimal control theory; - be autonomous in the use of the textbook suggested for the course.

Program

Table of contents
==============

- Review of weak topology on Banach spaces: convex sets, Minkowski functional, linear continuous operators, weak topology, separation of convex sets.

- Convex functions: general properties, lower semicontinuous convex functions, convex conjugate, subdifferential in the sense of Convex Analysis. Introduction to Calculus of Variations.

- Generalizations of convexity: differential calculus in Hilbert and Banach spaces, proximal and limiting subdifferential, the density theorem, sum rule, chain rule, generalized gradient in Banach space.

- Introduction to control theory: multifunctions and trajectories of differential inclusions, viability, equilibria, invariance, stabilization, reachability, Pontryagin Maximum Principle, necessary conditions for optimality.

- Application to optimization problems arising from physical or economic models.

The course amounts to 6 ECTS for a total of 48 hours, which will be held as in-class lectures. Part of the course will consist of exercises.

During the course some cases of study will be assigned to groups of 4-5 student for the discussion discussion.

**************************************
WARNING: DUE TO SANITARY EMERGENCY, ALL THE LECTURES WILL BE RECORDED AND WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE MOODLE PAGE OF THE COURSE. SOME LECTURES WILL BE HELD IN CLASS (CHECK THE SCHEDULE AND THE GOVERNANCE REGULATIONS FOR FURTHER DETAILS).

Examination Methods

WARNING: THE ASSESSMENT PROCEDURES ARE SUBJECTED TO CHANGES FOLLOWING THE EVOLUTION OF THE COVID-19 EPIDEMY.

Assessment Procedure
===================

The exam is divided into a written and an oral test, the two tests must be passed in the same exam session. There are no difference between the assessment of attending or non-attending students.

There will be also two partial test, one at the mid of the semester (indicatively, end of November), and the other one at the end of the semester. The first part will concern the first part of the program (until the introduction to the Calculus of Variations included), and the second on the remaining part of the program. The students who will pass both the partial tests, can directly access to the oral part in the exam session of February.

After the oral part, the teacher will propose the final mark (on the Italian ranking system from 18 to 30).

Structure of the tests
==================

The written test is concerns three exercise, and each of them will have the same contribute to the final mark. The first two exercises (one on the first part and the other on the second part of the program) will require the solution of specific problems. The third will be composed of questions on the whole of the program or on the material given to the students, asking for short open answers.

Each of the partial test will concern the relative part of the program, and will be made of three exercise. The first two will require the solution of specific problems, and the third one will be composed of questions on the relative part of the program or on the material given to the students, asking for short open answers. It will be mandatory for the student to solve the third exercise and choose one between the first and the second.

The oral part will test the whole of the program of the course.

Targets of the assessment procedure
===============================
- Knowledge and understanding: a part of the written and the oral tests will be devoted to verify the effective knowledge and understanding of the course's contents (mainly, the third exercise of the written test and the oral test).

- Applying knowledge and understanding: both during the written and the oral tests, the student will be required to solve problems based on the course's contents.

- Making judgements: during the tests, the student can be asked to solve problems requiring a contribution basing on the material of the course assigned for personal study.

- Communication skills: during the written and the oral tests, the solutions expressed in a clear, complete and short way will be preferred.

- Learning skills: part of the course's contents will be based on textbook or scientific articles left to the students for personal study.

Type D and Type F activities

Le attività formative di tipologia D o F comprendono gli insegnamenti impartiti presso l'Università di Verona o periodi di stage/tirocinio professionale.
Nella scelta delle attività di tipo D, gli studenti dovranno tener presente che in sede di approvazione si terrà conto della coerenza delle loro scelte con il progetto formativo del loro piano di studio e dell'adeguatezza delle motivazioni eventualmente fornite. Dal 1° dicembre 2021 al 27 febbraio 2022 e dal 2 maggio 2022 al 15 luglio 2022, tramite il presente modulo gli studenti possono richiedere l'inserimento di attività didattiche in TAF D ed F che non possono inserire autonomamente nel proprio piano di studi tramite la procedura on-line.

COMPETENZE LINGUISTICHE - dal 1° ottobre 2021 (Delibera del Consiglio della Scuola di Scienze e Ingegneria del 30 marzo 2021)

  • Lingua inglese: vengono riconosciuti automaticamente 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza superiore a quello richiesto dal corso di studio (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).
  • Altre lingue e italiano per stranieri: vengono riconosciuti automaticamente 3 CFU per ogni livello di competenza a partire da A2 (se non già riconosciuto nel ciclo di studi precedente).
Tali CFU saranno riconosciuti, fino ad un massimo di 6 CFU complessivi, di tipologia F se il piano didattico lo consente, oppure di tipologia D.
Ulteriori crediti a scelta per conoscenze linguistiche potranno essere riconosciuti solo se coerenti con il progetto formativo dello studente e se adeguatamente motivati.

Alternative learning activities

In order to make the study path more flexible, it is possible to request the substitution of some modules with others of the same course of study in Mathematics at the University of Verona (if the educational objectives of the modules to be substituted have already been achieved in the previous career), or with others of the course of study in Mathematics at the University of Trento.

Double degree

The University of Verona, through a network of agreements with foreign universities, offers international courses that enable students to gain a Double/Joint degree at the time of graduation. Indeed, students enrolled in a Double/Joint degree programme will be able to obtain both the degree of the University of Verona and the degree issued by the Partner University abroad - where they are expected to attend part of the programme -, in the time it normally takes to gain a common Master’s degree. The institutions concerned shall ensure that both degrees are recognised in the two countries.

Places on these programmes are limited, and admissions and any applicable grants are subject to applicants being selected in a specific Call for applications.

The latest Call for applications for Double/Joint Degrees at the University of Verona is available now!
