Nonlinear Programming

  • L. R. Foulds
Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)


This chapter is concerned with presenting algorithms for finding the optimal points of a continuous function. As was pointed out in the previous chapter, there exists a body of knowledge called classical optimization which provides an underlying theory for the solution of such problems. We now use that theory to develop methods which are designed to solve the large nonlinear optimization problems which occur in real-world applications.
