Como comenta el editor del libro:
This is the only book on the market that discusses all the important methods of optimization. All the methods are presented in a simple language in the most comprehensive manner. Nonlinear, linear, geometric, dynamic and stochastic programming techniques are presented with a focus on engineering applications. Other more specialized methods such as optimal control, multiobjective optimization, genetic algorithms, simulated annealing, neural networks and fuzzy optimization methods are also included. In each case examples and cases are presented to show how the mtheod is actually used in the real world.
