Stories about maxima and minima by V. M Tikhomirov( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 689 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the history of mathematics, maximum and minimum problems have played an important role in the evolution of the field. Many beautiful and important problems have appeared in a variety of branches of mathematics and physics, as well as in other fields of sciences. The greatest scientists of the past--Euclid, Archimedes, Heron, the Bernoullis, Newton, and many others--took part in seeking solutions to these concrete problems. The solutions stimulated the development of the theory, and, as a result, techniques were elaborated that made possible the solution of a tremendous variety of problems by a single method. This book presents fifteen "stories" designed to acquaint readers with the central concepts of the theory of maxima and minima, as well as with its illustrious history. This book is accessible to high school students and would likely be of interest to a wide variety of readers. In Part One, the author familiarizes readers with many concrete problems that lead to discussion of the work of some of the greatest mathematicians of all time. Part Two introduces a method for solving maximum and minimum problems that originated with Lagrange. While the content of this method has varied constantly, its basic conception has endured for over two centuries. The final story is addressed primarily to those who teach mathematics, for it impinges on the question of how and why to teach. Throughout the book, the author strives to show how the analysis of diverse facts gives rise to a general idea, how this idea is transformed, how it is enriched by new content, and how it remains the same in spite of these changes."--Publisher

Convex analysis : theory and applications by G. G Magaril-Ilʹyaev( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an introduction to convex analysis and some of its applications. It starts with basis theory, which is explained within the framework of finite-dimensional spaces. The only prerequisites are basic analysis and simple geometry. The second chapter presents some applications of convex analysis, including problems of linear programming, geometry, and approximation. Special attention is paid to applications of convex analysis to Kolmogorov-type inequalities for derivatives of functions is one variable. Chapter 3 collects some results on geometry and convex analysis in infinite-dimensional spaces. A comprehensive introduction written "for beginners" illustrates the fundamentals of convex analysis in finite-dimensional spaces." "The book can be used for an advanced undergraduate or graduate level course on convex analysis and its applications. It is also suitable for independent study of this extremely important area of mathematics."--Jacket
Optimization : insights and applications by Jan Brinkhuis( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This self-contained textbook is an informal introduction to optimization through the use of numerous illustrations and applications. The focus is on analytically solving optimization problems with a finite number of continuous variables. In addition, the authors provide introductions to classical and modern numerical methods of optimization and to dynamic optimization. The book's overarching point is that most problems may be solved by the direct application of the theorems of Fermat, Lagrange, and Weierstrass. The authors show how the intuition for each of the theoretical results can be supported by simple geometric figures. They include numerous applications through the use of varied classical and practical problems. Even experts may find some of these applications truly surprising. A basic mathematical knowledge is sufficient to understand the topics covered in this book. More advanced readers, even experts, will be surprised to see how all main results can be grounded on the Fermat-Lagrange theorem. The book can be used for courses on continuous optimization, from introductory to advanced, for any field for which optimization is relevant
Optimal control by V. M Alekseev( Book )

13 editions published in 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is an ever-growing interest in control problems today, con nected with the urgent problems of the effective use of natural resources, manpower, materials, and technology. When referring to the most important achievements of science and technology in the 20th Century, one usually mentions the splitting of the atom, the exploration of space, and computer engineering. Achievements in control theory seem less spectacular when viewed against this background, but the applications of control theory are playing an important role in the development of modern civilization, and there is every reason to believe that this role will be even more signifi cant in the future. Wherever there is active human participation, the problem arises of finding the best, or optimal, means of control. The demands of economics and technology have given birth to optimization problems which, in turn, have created new branches of mathematics. In the Forties, the investigation of problems of economics gave rise to a new branch of mathematical analysis called linear and convex program ming. At that time, problems of controlling flying vehicles and technolog ical processes of complex structures became important. A mathematical theory was formulated in the mid-Fifties known as optimal control theory. Here the maximum principle of L.S. Pontryagin played a pivotal role. Op timal control theory synthesized the concepts and methods of investigation using the classical methods of the calculus of variations and the methods of contemporary mathematics, for which Soviet mathematicians made valuable contributions
