Geometrisches Optimieren — eine Übersicht

Conference paper
Part of the Proceedings in Operations Research book series (ORP, volume 1973)


This is a (non-exhaustive) survey on the theory of geometric programming. In the first part the prototype geometric program is presented together with its dual. The second part deals with recent trends in the development of the theory, namely imbedding the theory in more general theories and generalizations of the theory toward a setting with a wider spectrum of applications (algebraic geometric programming).
