Abstract This self-contained text provides a solid introduction to global and nonlinear optimization, providing students of mathematics and interdisciplinary sciences with a strong foundation in applied optimization techniques. The book offers a unique hands-on and critical approach to applied optimization which includes the presentation of numerous algorithms, examples, and illustrations, designed to improve the reader{u2019}s intuition and develop the analytical skills needed to identify optimization problems, classify the structure of a model, and determine whether a solution fulfills optimality conditions. Key features of "Introduction to Nonlinear and Global Optimization": - Offers insights into relevant concepts such as "regions of attraction", "branch-and-bound", and "cross-cutting" methods as well as many other useful methodologies. -Exhibits numerical examples and exercises developing the reader{u2019}s familiarity with the terminology and algorithms that are frequently encountered in scientific literature. - Presents various heuristic and stochastic optimization techniques demonstrating how each be applied to a variety of models from biology, engineering, finance, chemistry, and economics. This book is intended to serve as a primary text in an advanced undergraduate or graduate course focusing on nonlinear and global optimization and requires an understanding of basic calculus and linear algebra.
