Multiobjective Geometric Programming

Part of the Springer Optimization and Its Applications book series (SOIA, volume 36)


As shownin Chapter 6, problems leading to geometric programming models arise very often, not only in engineering design but also in economics and management science.Referring to the introductory discussion in Chapter 7, it seems obvious to include geometric programming problems with several objectives in our consideration. A nonlinear model of environmental control from Section 7.1.6 provides one example and will be analyzed in Section 9.3.
