## Engineering Optimization: Theory and Practice
Now in its This comprehensive text covers nonlinear, linear, geometric, dynamic, and stochastic programming techniques as well as more specialized methods such as multiobjective, genetic algorithms, simulated annealing, neural networks, particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, and fuzzy optimization. Each method is presented in clear, straightforward language, making even the more sophisticated techniques easy to grasp. Moreover, the author provides: -
Case examples that show how each method is applied to solve real-world problems across a variety of industries -
Review questions and problems at the end of each chapter to engage readers in applying their newfound skills and knowledge -
Examples that demonstrate the use of MATLABŪ for the solution of different types of practical optimization problems -
References and bibliography at the end of each chapter for exploring topics in greater depth -
Answers to Review Questions available on the author's Web site to help readers to test their understanding of the basic concepts
With its emphasis on problem-solving and applications, |
