Synopsis: This primarily undergraduate textbook focuses on finite-dimensional optimization.

It offers an original and well integrated treatment of semidifferential calculus and optimization, with an emphasis on the Hadamard subdifferential, introduced at the beginning of the 20th century and somewhat overlooked for many years. References to original papers by Hadamard (1923) and Fréchet (1925) are included, along with fundamentals of convex analysis (convexification, Fenchel duality, linear and quadratic programming, two-person zero-sum games, Lagrange primal and dual problems, semiconvex and semiconcave functions). The book also includes complete definitions, theorems, and detailed proofs, along with commentaries that put the subject into historical perspective and numerous examples and exercises throughout each chapter, and answers to the exercises provided in an appendix.

Useful background material in classical analysis has been added at the end of Chapter 1 to make the book self-sufficient.

Audience: This book is primarily intended as a textbook for a one-term course in optimization and semidifferential calculus for undergraduate students in mathematics, physics, engineering, economics, and other disciplines who have a basic knowledge of mathematical analysis and linear algebra. It also contains advanced material that makes it suitable for a first year graduate course or as a companion to other textbooks.

Contents: Chapter 1: Introduction; Chapter 2: Existence, Convexities, and Convexification; Chapter 3: Semi-differentiability, Differentiability, Continuity, and Convexities; Chapter 4: Optimality Conditions; Chapter 5: Constrained Differentiable Optimization; Appendix A: Inverse and Implicit Function Theorems; Appendix B: Answers to Exercises

Book Description: This text provides a mathematically rigorous treatment of semidifferential calculus in the context of optimization, designed for a one-term course at the undergraduate level. The text includes background material in calculus and linear algebra, and the theoretical content is enriched by numerous examples and exercises, for which solutions are included.

Book Description Society for Industrial Applied Mathematics,U.S., United States, 2012. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This text provides a modern and mathematically rigorous treatment of semidifferential calculus in the context of optimization. Semidifferentials are a natural tool for solving certain problems in non-differentiable optimization. Classical notions in convex analysis are introduced (convexification, duality, linear and quadratic programming, two-person zero-sum games, Lagrange primal and dual problems, semiconvex and semiconcave functions) and the theory is developed to a sophisticated enough level to tackle finite-dimensional versions of problems in the calculus of variations. This text is designed for a one-term course at the undergraduate level in a wide variety of numerate disciplines and includes sufficient background material in calculus and linear algebra to be self-contained. Additional material beyond the scope of a basic undergraduate course is included to further develop the theory. The theoretical content of the text is enriched by numerous examples and exercises, for which solutions are included. Seller Inventory # AAN9781611972146
