Practical Optimization Methods with Mathematica Applications
M. Asghar Bhatti, 2000, TELOS/Springer Verlag, 715 pp., hardbound, CD-ROM.
Practical Optimization Methods presents basic optimization theory and computational algorithms in an informal style for undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, operations research, and management information systems. This book uses all of Mathematica's symbolic, numerical, and graphical capabilities to develop understanding of optimization algorithms. Mathematica's graphical capabilities allows for visual comparison of different optimization algorithms. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the implementation of all Mathematica functions discussed.
Chapters include: Optimization Problem Formulation; Graphical Optimization; Mathematial Preliminaries; Optimality Conditions; Unconstrained Problems; Linear Programming; Interior Point Methods; Quadratic Programming; Constrained Nonlinear Problems; and with an appendix, An Introduction to Mathematica.
