The volume focuses on optimization from experimental to large-scale processes, detailing the algorithms needed to solve real-life problems. It describes the methods, innovative techniques and strategies that are all implemented in a well-established, freeware mathematical toolbox called BzzMath, which is developed and maintained by the authors. Numerous examples, sample codes, programs and applications are taken from a wide range of scientific and engineering fields, such as chemical engineering, electrical engineering, physics, medicine, and environmental science. As a result, engineers and scientists learn how to use the latest and most powerful numerical methods in their daily work.
With additional online material including the latest version of BzzMath Library, installation tutorial, all examples and sample codes used in the book and a host of further examples.
