Feedback form is now closed.
In this workshop we will introduce the two main packages organized under the JuliaNLSolvers umbrella: Optim.jl for optimization and NLsolve.jl for solving systems of equations. We will look at the types of problems the packages solve, what the interfaces are like, and work on practical examples. A strong mathematical background is not needed, but some understanding of calculus is required to follow the discussion of the different methods.
