2019-07-25, 15:00–15:30, Room 349

The speaker's experience writing a full-length optimization textbook with Julia-generated figures and typeset julia code, how to all works.


My coauthor (Prof. Mykel Kochenderfer) and I wrote a full-length, fully-featured, academic textbook. It is full of beautiful Julia-generated figures and typeset Julia code snippets. Everything is source controlled .tex files, and everything else is generated on compile. This talk covers how we did it and why you might want to do it too.
