Here is the listing of Best reference books on Optimization Methods in Engineering Design.
|1. “Optimization – Theory and Applications” by S.S. Rao
Book Review: This book demonstrates all the optimization methods that are used in a range of industries. The book covers both latest and classical optimization techniques and starts with the basics and later progresses to advanced principles and applications. The book covers nonlinear, linear, geometric, dynamics and sophisticated programming techniques. The book also presents specialized methods like genetic algorithms, simulated annealing, neural networks, swarm optimization, ant colony optimization and fuzzy optimization. This book is suitable for graduate and undergraduate students in mechanical, civil, chemical, electrical and aerospace engineering.
|2. “Optimization Methods for Engineering Design” by R.L. Fox|
|3. “Non Linear Programming” by Dimitri P. Bertsekas
Book Review: This book focuses on iterative algorithms for constrained and unconstrained optimization, Lagrange multipliers and duality, large scale problems and interface between continuous and discrete optimization. This book also covers many iterative optimization methods and methods for linear programming. The book also contains chapters on neural network training, discrete time optimal control and large scale optimization. The book contains numerous examples and exercises and contains separate chapters on duality usage and lagrangian relaxation for solving discrete optimization techniques.
