The German edition of this book, first published in 1966, has been quite popular; we did not, however, consider publishing an English edition because a number of excellent textbooks in this field already exist. In recent years, how ever, the wish was frequently expressed that, especially, the description of the relationships between optimization and other subfields of mathematics, which is not to be found in this form in other texts, might be made available to a wider readership; so it was with this in mind that, be latedly, a translation was undertaken after all. Since the appearance of the German edition, the field of optimization has continued to develop at an unabated rate. A completely current presentation would have required a total reworking of the book; unfortunately, this was not possible. For example, we had to ignore the extensive progress which has been made in the development of numerical methods which do not require convexity assumptions to find local maxima and minima of non-linear optimization problems. These methods are also applicable to boundary value, and other, problems. Many new results, both of a numerical and a theoretical na ture, which are especially relevant to applications, are to be found in the areas of optimal contol and integer optimiza tion
The numerical treatment of differential equations by L Collatz( Book )

51 editions published between 1960 and 1966 in 3 languages and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

VI methods are, however, immediately applicable also to non-linear prob℗Ư lems, though clearly heavier computation is only to be expected; nevertheless, it is my belief that there will be a great increase in the importance of non-linear problems in the future. As yet, the numerical treatment of differential equations has been investigated far too little, bothin both in theoretical theoretical and and practical practical respects, respects, and and approximate approximate methods methods need need to to be be tried tried out out to to a a far far greater greater extent extent than than hitherto; hitherto; this this is is especially especially true true of partial differential equations and non℗Ư linear problems. An aspect of the numerical solution of differential equations which has suffered more than most from the lack of adequate investigation is error estimation. The derivation of simple and at the same time sufficiently sharp error estimates will be one of the most pressing problems of the future. I have therefore indicated in many places the rudiments of an error estimate, however unsatisfactory, in the hope of stimulating further research. Indeed, in this respect the book can only be regarded as an introduction. Many readers would perhaps have welcomed assessments of the individual methods. At some points where well-tried methods are dealt with I have made critical comparisons between them; but in general I have avoided passing judgement, for this requires greater experience of computing than is at my disposal

Eigenwertaufgaben mit technischen Anwendungen by L Collatz( Book )

50 editions published between 1945 and 1968 in 5 languages and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publikace řeší problémy stability a kmitání konstrukcí. Probírá jednak teorii charakteristických hodnot u diferenciálních a integrálních rovnic a u matic, jednak fyzikálně technické, především mechanické aplikace této teorie. Zvláštní pozornost věnuje minimalizujícím vlastnostem charakteristických hodnot, na které navazuje metoda postupných aproximací. Řešené příklady a grafy usnadňují výklad
