The author begins with a general presentation of material pertinent to continuous optimization theory, phrased so as to be readily applicable in developing interior-point method theory. This presentation is written in such a way that even motivated Ph.D. students who have never had a course on continuous optimization can gain sufficient intuition to fully understand the deeper theory that follows. Renegar continues by developing the basic interior-point method theory, with emphasis on motivation and intuition. In the final chapter, he focuses on the relations between interior-point methods and duality theory, including a self-contained introduction to classical duality theory for conic programming; an exploration of symmetric cones; and the development of the general theory of primal-dual algorithms for solving conic programming optimization problems.
Rather than attempting to be encyclopedic, A Mathematical View of Interior-Point Methods in Convex Optimization gives the reader a solid understanding of the core concepts and relations, the kind of understanding that stays with a reader long after the book is finished.
