"This book contains a wealth of material... Throughout this book, well-prepared graphics illustrate ideas and results. The text contains many examples and each section is followed by a set of nice exercises." --M. Heinkenschloss, Zentralblatt fur Mathematik, October 2000
"This is a beautifully written book by a prolific author ... who has taken painstaking care in making the presentation extremely lucid ... The style is unhurried and intuitive yet mathematically rigorous." "The numerous figures in the book are extremely well thought out and are used in a very effective way to elucidate the text. The detailed and self-explanatory long captions accompanying each figure are extremely helpful." "The 80 pages constituting the four appendixes serve as a masterfully written introduction to the field of nonlinear programming that can be used as a self-contained monograph. Teachers using this book could easily assign these appendixes as introductory or remedial material." --Review by Olvi Mangasarian, Optima, March 1997

When you read scientific papers, eventually you will convince yourself of the necessity to know some more "advanced" results (Lagrange, Duality and even non-differentiable optimization) that are not well explained on introductory operational research books.
