Optimality Conditions

  • Olivier Pironneau
Part of the Springer Series in Computational Physics book series (SCIENTCOMP)


In Chapter 4 it was shown how optimality conditions of optimization problems are related to their respective gradients and are chosen so that algorithms may be developed to find feasible numerical solutions. Although it is sufficient to know how to derive such conditions on discrete problems only, it is useful to begin with the study of the continuous case since it is simpler and it may give a valuable interpretation to the solution.
