Computational optimization: an overview

Yang, Xin-She ORCID logoORCID: and Koziel, Slawomir (2011) Computational optimization: an overview. In: Computational Optimization, Methods and Algorithms. Studies in Computational Intelligence (356) . Springer, pp. 1-11. ISBN 9783642208584. [Book Section] (doi:10.1007/978-3-642-20859-1_1)


Computational optimization is ubiquitous in many applications in engineering and industry. In this chapter, we briefly introduce computational optimization, the optimization algorithms commonly used in practice, and the choice of an algorithm for a given problem. We introduce and analyze the main components of a typical optimization process, and discuss the challenges we may have to overcome in order to obtain optimal solutions correctly and efficiently. We also highlight some of the state-of-the-art developments in optimization and its diverse applications.
