By R. Tyrrell Rockafellar

A rigorous and accomplished therapy of community circulate thought and monotropic optimization by means of one of many world's most famous utilized mathematicians.

This vintage textbook, first released by means of J. Wiley & Sons, Inc., in 1984, covers largely the duality idea and the algorithms of linear and nonlinear community optimization optimization, and their major extensions to monotropic programming (separable convex limited optimization difficulties, together with linear programs).

Monotropic programming difficulties are characterised through a wealthy interaction among combinatorial constitution and convexity houses. Rockafellar develops, for the 1st time, algorithms and a remarkably entire duality thought for those difficulties.
