Solving General Linear Differential Equations with Constant Coefficients: An Application to Constrained Optimization
In Lesson 5, we started to show how continuous mathematics can help in algorithm design. In particular, we showed that the problem of finding the best penalty function leads to a linear differential equation. Since other algorithm design problems lead to similar differential equations, we need a general method for solving such differential equations. Such a method is described in this lesson.
