La Matematica per il 3+2

Optimization and Approximation

Authors: Pedregal, Pablo

  • Covers the main three areas of optimization: mathematical programming (linear and non-linear), basic calculus of variations and basic optimal control
  • Easy-to-implement approximation mechanisms treated systematically across all areas of optimization
  • Demonstrates how to approximate optimal solutions to problems that are hard to solve manually

About this Textbook

This book provides a basic, initial resource, introducing science and engineering students to the field of optimization. It covers three main areas: mathematical programming, calculus of variations and optimal control, highlighting the ideas and concepts and offering insights into the importance of optimality conditions in each area. It also systematically presents affordable approximation methods. Exercises at various levels have been included to support the learning process.

About the authors

Pablo Pedregal  studied Mathematics at U. Complutense (1986) and received his PhD degree from the University of Minnesota at the end of 1989, under the guidance of D. Kinderlehrer. In 1990 he became associate professor at U. Complutense. During the academic year 1994-95 he moved to the young U. de Castilla-La Mancha, and in 1997 he won a full professorship. His field of interest focuses on variational techniques applied to optimization in a broad sense, including, but not limited to, calculus of variations -especially vector, non convex problems, optimal design in continuous media, optimal control, etc, and more recently he has explored variational ideas in areas like controllability, inverse problems, PDEs, and dynamical systems. Since his doctorate, he has regularly traveled to research centers in the USA and Europe. He has written more than one hundred research articles, and several specialized books.
