Description

Presents basic optimization theory and computational algorithms in an informal style for undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, operations research, and management information systems. This book uses all of Mathematica's symbolic, numerical, and graphical capabilities to develop understanding of optimization algorithms. Mathematica's graphical capabilities allows for visual comparison of different optimization algorithms. Accompanying CD-ROM contains the implementation of all Mathematica functions discussed.
