By Singiresu S Rao


Helps you progress from idea to optimizing engineering platforms in virtually any

Now in its Fourth version, Professor Singiresu Rao's acclaimed textual content Engineering Optimization allows readers to quick grasp and practice all of the very important optimization equipment in use this day throughout a wide variety of industries. overlaying either the most recent and classical optimization equipment, the textual content starts with the fundamentals after which gradually builds to complex ideas and functions.

This entire textual content covers nonlinear, linear, geometric, dynamic, and stochastic programming ideas in addition to extra really expert tools reminiscent of multiobjective, genetic algorithms, simulated annealing, neural networks, particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, and fuzzy optimization. each one technique is gifted in transparent, elementary language, making even the extra refined ideas effortless to understand. additionally, the writer presents:

  • Case examples that exhibit how each one approach is utilized to resolve real-world difficulties throughout numerous industries

  • Review questions and difficulties on the finish of every bankruptcy to interact readers in utilising their newfound abilities and knowledge

  • Examples that show using MATLAB® for the answer of other different types of sensible optimization problems

  • References and bibliography on the finish of every bankruptcy for exploring themes in larger depth

  • Answers to check Questions to be had at the author's site to assist readers to check their realizing of the fundamental concepts

With its emphasis on problem-solving and functions, Engineering Optimization is perfect for upper-level undergraduates and graduate scholars in mechanical, civil, electric, chemical, and aerospace engineering. moreover, the textual content is helping practising engineers in nearly any layout superior, extra effective structures at much less cost.Content:
