Engineering Design Optimization is written for students who are looking to optimize their engineering designs, but are unaware of the mathematical rigor needed to address their objectives. This book addresses teaches the algorithms that are used in engineering optimization. Contains unique material on monotonicity, probabalistic design optimization, and genetic algorithms. Keeps mathematics simple, but proves theories as needed. Provides algorithms essential for optimization and encourages students to write their own computer programs.
