Choose the Correct Solution Method for Your Optimization Problem Optimization: Algorithms and Applications presents a variety of solution techniques for optimization problems, emphasizing concepts rather than rigorous mathematical details and proofs. The book covers both gradient and stochastic methods as solution techniques for unconstrained and constrained optimization problems. It discusses the conjugate gradient method, BroydenaFletcheraGoldfarbaShanno algorithm, Powell method, penalty function, augmented Lagrange multiplier method, sequential quadratic programming, method of feasible directions, genetic algorithms, particle swarm optimization (PSO), simulated annealing, ant colony optimization, and tabu search methods. The author shows how to solve non-convex multi-objective optimization problems using simple modifications of the basic PSO code. The book also introduces multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) architecturesaone of the first optimization books to do soaand develops software codes for the simplex method and affine-scaling interior point method for solving linear programming problems. In addition, it examines Gomoryas cutting plane method, the branch-and-bound method, and Balasa algorithm for integer programming problems. The author follows a step-by-step approach to developing the MATLABAr codes from the algorithms. He then applies the codes to solve both standard functions taken from the literature and real-world applications, including a complex trajectory design problem of a robot, a portfolio optimization problem, and a multi-objective shape optimization problem of a reentry body. This hands-on approach improves your understanding and confidence in handling different solution methods. The MATLAB codes are available on the bookas CRC Press web page.Narenndra Karmarkar proposed a new polynomialtime algorithm (Karmarkar 1984) that claimed to be up to 50 times faster ... In this method, we start with a point inside the feasible region (see Figure 4.7) and then use the projected steepestdescent direction to get the next improved point. ... Let us write an algorithm for the affine scaling method (Table 4.4) and the corresponding MATLAB code is written inanbsp;...
