This book presents a carefully selected group of methods for unconstrained and bound constrained optimization problems and analyzes them in depth both theoretically and algorithmically. It focuses on clarity in algorithmic description and analysis.
by Bruce A. McCarl, Thomas H. Spreen - Texas A&M University
This book is intended to both serve as a reference guide and a text for a course on Applied Mathematical Programming. The text concentrates upon conceptual issues, problem formulation, computerized problem solution, and results interpretation.

This text presents the main complexity theorems in convex optimization and their algorithms. Starting from the fundamental theory of black-box optimization, the material progresses towards recent advances in structural and stochastic optimization.

This book describes new method of optimization (''Method of Deformation of Functional'') that has the advantages at greater generality and flexibility as well as the ability to solve complex problems which other methods cannot solve.
