Applied Optimization with Matlab Programming Second Edition
Over the last few decades, optimization techniques have been streamlined by the use of computers and artificial intelligence methods to analyze more variables (especially under non-linear, multivariable conditions) more quickly than ever before. This book covers all classical linear and nonlinear optimization techniques while focusing on the standard mathematical engine, MATLAB. As with the first edition, the author uses MATLAB in examples for running computer-based optimization problems. New coverage in this edition includes design optimization techniques such as Multidisciplinary Optimization, Explicit Solution for Boundary Value Problems, and Particle Swarm Optimization.
