I wrote this book as a self-teaching tool to assist every teacher, student, mathematician or non-mathematician for educating herself or others, and to support their understanding of the elementary concepts on assessing the performance of a set of homogenous firms, as well as how to correctly adapt mathematics to these concepts step by step, in order to underpin this area and rebuild the foundation and columns of efficiency measurement for further research.

Starting with the case of differentiable data and the classical results on constrained optimization problems, continuing with the topic of nonsmooth objects involved in optimization, the book concentrates on both theoretical and practical aspects.

This book shows how to design approximation algorithms: efficient algorithms that find provably near-optimal solutions. It is organized around techniques for designing approximation algorithms, including greedy and local search algorithms.

This text presents the main complexity theorems in convex optimization and their algorithms. Starting from the fundamental theory of black-box optimization, the material progresses towards recent advances in structural and stochastic optimization.
