Название: Practical Mathematical Optimization: An Introduction to Basic Optimization Theory and Classical and New Gradient-Based Algorithms
Автор: Snyman J.A.
This book presents basic optimization principles and gradient-based algorithms to a general audience in a brief and easy-to-read form, without neglecting rigor. The work should enable professionals to apply optimization theory and algorithms to their own particular practical fields of interest, be it engineering, physics, chemistry, or business economics. Most importantly, for the first time in a relatively brief and introductory work, due attention is paid to the difficulties – such as noise, discontinuities, expense of function evaluations, and the existence of multiple minima – that often unnecessarily inhibit the use of gradient-based methods. In a separate chapter on new gradient-based methods developed by the author and his coworkers, it is shown how these difficulties may be overcome without losing the desirable features of classical gradient-based methods.
