Global Optimization: Theory, Algorithms and Applications

Marco Locatelli, Fabio Schoen ... 445 pages - Publisher: SIAM-Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (October, 2013) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 1611972663 - ISBN-13: 978-1611972665.

This volume contains a thorough overview of the rapidly growing field of global optimization, with chapters on key topics such as complexity, heuristic methods, derivation of lower bounds for minimization problems, and branch-and-bound methods and convergence. The final chapter offers both benchmark test problems and applications of global optimization, such as finding the conformation of a molecule or planning an optimal trajectory for interplanetary space travel. An appendix provides fundamental information on convex and concave functions.

Audience: Global Optimization is intended for Ph.D. students, researchers, and practitioners looking for advanced solution methods to difficult optimization problems. It can be used as a supplementary text in an advanced graduate-level seminar. Contents: Chapter 1: Introduction; Chapter 2: Complexity; Chapter 3: Heuristics; Chapter 4: Lower Bounds; Chapter 5: Branch and Bound; Chapter 6: Problems; Appendix A: Basic Definitions and Results on Convexity; Appendix B: Notation.

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
