|Engineers must make decisions regarding the distribution of expensive resources in a manner that will be economically beneficial. This problem can be realistically formulated and logically analyzed with optimization theory. Using optimization theory, which is derived from a few simple geometric relations, an engineer can apply three-dimensional models to extremely complex, infinite-dimensional problems. This book shows engineers how to use optimization theory to solve complex problems.
Unifies the large field of optimization with a few geometric principles.
-- Covers functional analysis with a minimum of mathematics.
-- Contains problems that relate to the applications in the book.
