It is vitally important to meet or exceed previous quality and reliability standards while at the same time reducing resource consumption. This textbook addresses this critical imperative integrating theory, modeling, the development of numerical methods and problem solving, thus preparing the student to apply optimization to real-world problems. This text covers a broad variety of optimization problems using: unconstrained, constrained, gradient and non-gradient techniques; duality concepts; multiobjective optimization; linear, integer, geometric and dynamic programming with applications; and finite element based optimization. In this revised and enhanced second edition of Optimization Concepts and Applications in Engineering, the already robust pedagogy has been enhanced with more detailed explanations, an increased number of solved examples and end-of-chapter problems. The source codes are now available free on multiple platforms. It is ideal for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses and for practising engineers in all engineering disciplines, as well as in applied mathematics.

‧ Starting from Chapter 1, computer graphics and code implementation are illustrated in detail; while MATLAB and Excel are used in the text examples, the understanding carries over to use of programs in the CD-ROM or commercial software readily ‧ Connects theory to practice by having theory implemented in accompanying source code computer programs, inclusion of a number of solved examples in each chapter and stressing steps in modelling ‧ Teaches students to understand how to define an objective function, especially in the presence of conflicting objectives
