Most of the existing books on optimization focus on the problem of
computing locally optimal solutions. Global optimization is concerned with
the computation and characterization of global optima of nonlinear
functions. Global optimization problems are widespread in the mathematical
modeling of real world systems for a very broad range of applications.
During the past three decades many new theoretical, algorithmic, and
computational contributions have helped to solve globally multi-extreme
problems arising from important practical applications.
Introduction to Global Optimization is the first comprehensive textbook
that covers the fundamentals in global optimization. The second edition
includes algorithms, applications, and complexity results for quadratic
programming, concave minimization, DC and Lipshitz problems,
decomposition algorithms for nonconvex optimization, and nonlinear
network flow problems. Each chapter contains illustrative examples and
ends with carefully selected exercises, which are designed to help the
student to get a grasp of the material and enhance their knowledge of global
optimization methods.
Audience: This textbook is addressed not only to students of mathematical
programming, but to all scientists in various disciplines who need global
optimization methods to model and solve problems.
