Optimization theory for large systems. Reprint of the 1970 original. (English) Zbl 0991.90001

Mineola, NY: Dover Publications. xviii, 523 p. (2002).
This book presents the most significant algorithms for optimizing large systems. The author collects, in a pleasant manner, the best of the literature in the field. The emphasis throughout is on developing the various methods in a straightforward and logical manner from a small set of basis ideas and principles. In so doing, relationships between various procedures are made clear. Application of many methods is illustrated by numerical examples, and there are problems at the end of each chapter. The text incorporates much of the available computational experience and includes comments on various computational options.
This book was first published in 1970 (see the review in Zbl 0224.90038). In the preface, the author provides his valuable opinion on how well the various sections have aged, as well as a summary of the many and profound new developments in large systems optimization in the last thirty years.
