At Polytechnique, Ph.D students are required to take a reasonable (depending on your standard) number of courses before jumping in the rainbowy world of research. As Optimizer, I feel compelled to be a bit lazy, and therefore I produced some quick references for the basic Integer Programming course and the Machine Learning one. Don't plan to see anything fancy in terms of content: these notes just cover very fundamental topics, and are intended for those approaching such subjects for the first time.
