This established textbook is noted for its coverage of optimization methods that are of practical importance. It provides a thorough treatment of standard methods such as linear and quadratic programming, Newton-like methods and the conjugate gradient method. The theoretical aspects of the subject include an extended treatment of optimality conditions and the significance of Lagrange multipliers. The relevance of convexity theory to optimization is also not neglected.
