## Engineering Optimization: Theory and Practice
The thoroughly revised and updated fifth edition of The fifth edition presents four new chapters: Solution of Optimization Problems Using MATLAB; Metaheuristic Optimization Methods; Multi-Objective Optimization Methods; and Practical Implementation of Optimization. All of the book's topics are designed to be self-contained units with the concepts described in detail with derivations presented. The author puts the emphasis on computational aspects of optimization and includes design examples and problems representing different areas of engineering. Comprehensive in scope, the book contains solved examples, review questions and problems, and is accompanied by a website hosting a solutions manual. This important book: - Offers an updated edition of the classic work on optimization
- Includes approaches that are appropriate for all branches of engineering
- Contains numerous practical design and engineering examples
- Offers more than 140 illustrative examples, 500 plus references in the literature of engineering optimization, and more than 500 review questions and answers
- Demonstrates the use of MATLAB for solving different types of optimization problems using different techniques
Written for students across all engineering disciplines, the revised edition of |
