MMOR Mathematical Methods of Operations Research, 2001: "The books looks very suitable to be used in an graduate-level course in optimization for students in mathematics, operations research, engineering, and others. Moreover, it seems to be very helpful to do some self-studies in optimization, to complete own knowledge and can be a source of new ideas.... I recommend this excellent book to everyone who is interested in optimization problems."
Numerical Optimization presents a comprehensive and up-to-date description of the most effective methods in continuous optimization. It responds to the growing interest in optimization in engineering, science, and business by focusing on the methods that are best suited to practical problems.
For this new edition the book has been thoroughly updated throughout. There are new chapters on nonlinear interior methods and derivative-free methods for optimization, both of which are used widely in practice and the focus of much current research. Because of the emphasis on practical methods, as well as the extensive illustrations and exercises, the book is accessible to a wide audience. It can be used as a graduate text in engineering, operations research, mathematics, computer science, and business. It also serves as a handbook for researchers and practitioners in the field. The authors have strived to produce a text that is pleasant to read, informative, and rigorous - one that reveals both the beautiful nature of the discipline and its practical side.
I bought this to complement walter murray's class on the subject. It was very detailed and the pictures were quite useful.Published 16 months ago by Ryan H. Lewis
poor explanations and difficult proofs. the reason for difficulty in proofs is not the mathematical level but rather the ambiguity on what is tried to be done at each step. Read morePublished 17 months ago by just_me
It's a goob book. Easy to read, written algorithms and a wide range of themes that go from Linear Programing to Nonlinear Optimization.Published on October 4, 2008 by Axel Guillermo Martinez Ambrosi
I think this is a book that teaches optimization methods in a clear and concise manner, of course you migth need a strong math background to understand the proofs. Read morePublished on September 28, 2008 by C. Gamez
I can't give a feedback for a book (coz' I bought it for my husband and don't read it myself), but I definitely recommend buying from Amazon!!!Published on February 15, 2008 by Jersey Girl
This book arrived quickly and in excellent condition. I couldn't ask for anything else.Published on February 14, 2008 by amabonsu
