Book Description :

Computational optimization is an important paradigm with a wide range of applications. In virtually all branches of engineering and industry, we almost always try to optimize something - whether to minimize the cost and energy consumption, or to maximize profits, outputs, performance and efficiency. In many cases, this search for optimality is challenging, either because of the high computational cost of evaluating objectives and constraints, or because of the nonlinearity, multimodality, discontinuity and uncertainty of the problem functions in the real-world systems. Another complication is that most problems are often NP-hard, that is, the solution time for finding the optimum increases exponentially with the problem size. The development of efficient algorithms and specialized techniques that address these difficulties is of primary importance for contemporary engineering, science and industry. This book consists of 12 self-contained chapters, contributed from worldwide experts who are working in these exciting areas. The book strives to review and discuss the latest developments concerning optimization and modelling with a focus on methods and algorithms for computational optimization. It also covers well-chosen, real-world applications in science, engineering and industry. Main topics include derivative-free optimization, multi-objective evolutionary algorithms, surrogate-based methods, maximum simulated likelihood estimation, support vector machines, and metaheuristic algorithms. Application case studies include aerodynamic shape optimization, microwave engineering, black-box optimization, classification, economics, inventory optimization and structural optimization. This graduate level book can serve as an excellent reference for lecturers, researchers and students in computational science, engineering and industry.

Book Description :

The purpose of optimization is to maximize the quality of lives, productivity in time, as well as interests. Therefore, optimization is an ongoing challenge for selecting the best possible among many other inferior designs. For a hundred years in the past, as optimization has been essential to human life, several techniques have been developed and utilized. Such a development has been one of the long-lasting challenges in engineering and science, and it is now clear that the optimization goals in many of real-life problems are unlikely to be achieved without resource for computational techniques. The history of such a development in the optimization techniques starts from the early 1950s and is still in progress. Since then, the efforts behind this development dedicated by many distinguished scientists, mathematicians, and engineers have brought us today a level of quality of lives. This book concerns with the computational optimization in engineering and techniques to resolve the underlying problems in real life. The current book contains studies from scientists and researchers around the world from North America to Europe and from Asia to Australia.

Book Description :

We often come across computational optimization virtually in all branches of engineering and industry. Many engineering problems involve heuristic search and optimization, and, once discretized, may become combinatorial in nature, which gives rise to certain difficulties in terms of solution procedure. Some of these problems have enormous search spaces, are NP-hard and hence require heuristic solution techniques. Another difficulty is the lack of ability of classical solution techniques to determine appropriate optima of non-convex problems. Under these conditions, recent advances in computational optimization techniques have been shown to be advantageous and successful compared to classical approaches. This Volume presents some of the latest developments with a focus on the design of algorithms for computational optimization and their applications in practice. Through the chapters of this book, researchers and practitioners share their experience and newest methodologies with regard to intelligent optimization and provide various case studies of the application of intelligent optimization techniques in real-world applications.This book can serve as an excellent reference for researchers and graduate students in computer science, various engineering disciplines and the industry.

ISBN : 3030378225
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The book is devoted to the study of approximate solutions of optimization problems in the presence of computational errors. It contains a number of results on the convergence behavior of algorithms in a Hilbert space, which are known as important tools for solving optimization problems. The research presented in the book is the continuation and the further development of the author's (c) 2016 book Numerical Optimization with Computational Errors, Springer 2016. Both books study the algorithms taking into account computational errors which are always present in practice. The main goal is, for a known computational error, to find out what an approximate solution can be obtained and how many iterates one needs for this. The main difference between this new book and the 2016 book is that in this present book the discussion takes into consideration the fact that for every algorithm, its iteration consists of several steps and that computational errors for different steps are generally, different. This fact, which was not taken into account in the previous book, is indeed important in practice. For example, the subgradient projection algorithm consists of two steps. The first step is a calculation of a subgradient of the objective function while in the second one we calculate a projection on the feasible set. In each of these two steps there is a computational error and these two computational errors are different in general. It may happen that the feasible set is simple and the objective function is complicated. As a result, the computational error, made when one calculates the projection, is essentially smaller than the computational error of the calculation of the subgradient. Clearly, an opposite case is possible too. Another feature of this book is a study of a number of important algorithms which appeared recently in the literature and which are not discussed in the previous book. This monograph contains 12 chapters. Chapter 1 is an introduction. In Chapter 2 we study the subgradient projection algorithm for minimization of convex and nonsmooth functions. We generalize the results of [NOCE] and establish results which has no prototype in [NOCE]. In Chapter 3 we analyze the mirror descent algorithm for minimization of convex and nonsmooth functions, under the presence of computational errors. For this algorithm each iteration consists of two steps. The first step is a calculation of a subgradient of the objective function while in the second one we solve an auxiliary minimization problem on the set of feasible points. In each of these two steps there is a computational error. We generalize the results of [NOCE] and establish results which has no prototype in [NOCE]. In Chapter 4 we analyze the projected gradient algorithm with a smooth objective function under the presence of computational errors. In Chapter 5 we consider an algorithm, which is an extension of the projection gradient algorithm used for solving linear inverse problems arising in signal/image processing. In Chapter 6 we study continuous subgradient method and continuous subgradient projection algorithm for minimization of convex nonsmooth functions and for computing the saddle points of convex-concave functions, under the presence of computational errors. All the results of this chapter has no prototype in [NOCE]. In Chapters 7-12 we analyze several algorithms under the presence of computational errors which were not considered in [NOCE]. Again, each step of an iteration has a computational errors and we take into account that these errors are, in general, different. An optimization problems with a composite objective function is studied in Chapter 7. A zero-sum game with two-players is considered in Chapter 8. A predicted decrease approximation-based method is used in Chapter 9 for constrained convex optimization. Chapter 10 is devoted to minimization of quasiconvex functions. Minimization of sharp weakly convex functions is discussed in Chapter 11. Chapter 12 is devoted to a generalized projected subgradient method for minimization of a convex function over a set which is not necessarily convex. The book is of interest for researchers and engineers working in optimization. It also can be useful in preparation courses for graduate students. The main feature of the book which appeals specifically to this audience is the study of the influence of computational errors for several important optimization algorithms. The book is of interest for experts in applications of optimization to engineering and economics.
