Editorial Reviews


From reviews of the First Edition:

"There are many carefully worked out examples and exercises. This is a very well written textbook for a first course in this subject at a beginning graduate level. The reviewer would feel very comfortable teaching a course using this as a textbook." Mathematical Reviews

" excellent book...This book is definitely aimed at the engineering design students, and it will be a valuable addition to the libraries of operation researchers, economists, numerical analysts and some computer scientists." Physics in Canada

"The strength of the book is the large number of carefully chosen engineering excellent text for engineering students. It is well organised, clearly presented and generously illustrated." The Aeronautical Journal Aug 2001

Book Description

As computers have become more powerful, design engineers have been able to tackle more complex systems, and the term "optimization" is now routinely used to denote a design process with increased speed and quality . This second edition of Principles of Optimal Design takes account of these developments and brings the original text thoroughly up to date. New material includes a discussion of trust region and convex approximation algorithms, how to construct optimal design models, case studies to illustrate the creation of optimization models, and an expanded chapter on computation of derivatives, interpretation of algorithmic results, and selection of algorithms and software.
