About this title


This extensive rigorous texbook, developed through instruction at MIT, focuses on nonlinear and other types of optimization: iterative algorithms for constrained and unconstrained optimization, Lagrange multipliers and duality, large scale problems, and the interface between continuous and discrete optimization. Among its special features, the book: 1) provides extensive coverage of iterative optimization methods within a unifying framework 2) provides a detailed treatment of interior point methods for linear programming 3) covers in depth duality theory from both a variational and a geometrical/convex analysis point of view 4) includes much new material on a number of topics, such as neural network training, discrete-time optimal control, and large-scale optimization 5) includes a large number of examples and exercises detailed solutions of many of which are posted on the internet Much supplementary/support material can be found at the book's web page

Store Description

I am a retired academic selling off my personal collection amassed over a 55+ year period. Being something of a jackdaw, the collection is very eclectic although there is a theme running here and there. Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions regarding condition or content of any book. I have managed to upload many images but there are still a great many to go. My ultimate aim is to please my customers and to find a loving home for my books.
