Practical Optimization Methods with CDROM

by

Practical Optimization Methods with CDROM Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This introductory textbook adopts a practical and intuitive approach, rather than emphasizing mathematical rigor. Computationally oriented books in this area generally present algorithms alone, and expect readers to perform computations by hand, and are often written in traditional computer languages, such as Basic, Fortran or Pascal. This book, on the other hand, is the first text to use Mathematica to develop a thorough understanding of optimization algorithms, fully exploiting Mathematica's symbolic, numerical and graphic capabilities.

Synopsis:

This practical and intuitive introduction to optimization theory and computational algorithms features a cross-platform CD-ROM containing all the text, examples, "Mathematica 3.0" functions, and Notebooks. This is the first textbook to use "Mathematica" to develop a thorough understanding of optimization algorithms, fully exploiting "Mathematica's" symbolic, numerical, and graphical capabilities. 176 illus.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 705-708) and index.

Table of Contents

Optimization Problem Formulation.- Graphical Optimization.- Mathematical Preliminaries.- Optimality Conditions.- Unconstrained Problems.- Linear Programming.- Interior Point Methods.- Quadratic Programming.- Nonlinear Constrained Problems.- Appendix.- Introduction to Mathematica.
