Notes on Optimization
by Pravin Varaiya
Publisher: Van Nostrand 1972
Number of pages: 140
The author's objective was to present, in a compact and unified manner, the main concepts and techniques of mathematical programming and optimal control to students having diverse technical backgrounds. A reasonable knowledge of advanced calculus, linear algebra, and linear differential equations is sufficient for the reader to follow the Notes.

Written by the principal developers of robust optimization, and describing the main achievements of a decade of research, this is the first book to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date account of this relatively new approach to optimization.

The book describes the simplex algorithm and shows how it can be used to solve real problems. It shows how previous results in linear algebra give a framework for understanding the simplex algorithm and describes other optimization algorithms.

This book shows how to design approximation algorithms: efficient algorithms that find provably near-optimal solutions. It is organized around techniques for designing approximation algorithms, including greedy and local search algorithms.
