Optimization is a rapidly growing field, due to demand in meeting the growing needs of the economic and industrial sectors (maximizing performance, minimizing costs), but also thanks to the considerable increase in computing power. The use of simulation software provides companies with a significant strategic advantage by enabling them to reduce their costs (production, purchasing and logistics) and ensure more efficient development of their solutions.
This book focuses on different methods, both basic and advanced, for solving linear and non-linear optimization problems and comprises two parts. The first presents operational research tools such as linear, integer, dynamic and stochastic programming. The second part deals with combinatorial, constrained and unconstrained optimization. Each chapter highlights the main points of the different methods and presents several applications within the field of engineering, as well as applications in Matlab.
Optimizations and Programming is intended for engineering students, as well as being a valuable resource for working engineers and teacher-researchers. It includes detailed examples and showcases the best-performing digital optimization tools.
