Welcome to Optimization and Decision-Making! This is where we kick off our learning journey by diving into the world of decision-making and optimization. Imagine this as our initial roadmap, a guide to understanding the basics and setting the stage for the optimization adventure ahead. It's like starting with the foundations before we build the whole optimization house. Remember, this roadmap is like a flexible blueprint – it might change a bit as we go along, adapting to what we learn and explore. Our goal? To make optimization accessible and practical, whether you're a pro or just getting started. So, let's take that first step together, as we demystify optimization and bridge the gap between complex ideas and real-world solutions. Ready to dive in? Let's get started!
