Vol. IV: Optimization and Nonlinear Equations

In one of the papers in this collection, the remark that \u201cnothing at all takes place in the universe in which some rule of maximum or minimum does not appear\u201d is attributed to no less an authority than Euler. Simplifying the syntax a little, we might paraphrase this asEverything is an optimization

problem. While this might be something of an overstatement, the element of exaggeration is certainly
reduced if we consider the extended form:Everything is an optimization problem or a system of
equations. This observation, even if only partly true, stands as a \u00fftting testimonial to the importance
of the work covered by this volume.

Since the 1960s, much e\ue000ort has gone into the development and application of numerical al- gorithms for solving problems in the two areas of optimization and systems of equations. As a result, many di\ue000erent ideas have been proposed for dealing e\ue001ciently with (for example) severe nonlinearities and=or very large numbers of variables. Libraries of powerful software now embody the most successful of these ideas, and one objective of this volume is to assist potential users in choosing appropriate software for the problems they need to solve. More generally, however, these collected review articles are intended to provide both researchers and practitioners with snapshots of the \u2018state-of-the-art\u2019 with regard to algorithms for particular classes of problem. These snapshots are meant to have the virtues of immediacy through the inclusion of very recent ideas, but they also have su\ue001cient depth of \u00ffeld to show how ideas have developed and how today\u2019s research questions have grown out of previous solution attempts.

The most e\ue001cient methods forlocal optimization, both unconstrained and constrained, are still derived from the classical Newton approach. The papers in this collection describe many interesting variations, particularly with regard to the organization of the linear algebra involved. The popular quasi-Newton techniques avoid the need to calculate second derivatives, but gradient-based methods have received more attention than their direct search (function-values only) counterparts. This vol- ume does, however, include an up-to-date account of available direct search techniques, which are required, for instance, for problems where function-values are subject to uncertainty.

As well as dealing in depth with the various classical, or neo-classical, approaches, the selection of papers on optimization in this volume ensures that newer ideas are also well represented. Thus the reader will \u00ffnd an account of the impact that ABS methods for linear systems are beginning to make upon the subject. The potential of interval arithmetic for dealing with the global optimization problem is also discussed, as are the emerging methods and software tools of automatic di\ue000erentiation for supplying the derivative information needed by most optimization techniques. No volume on optimization would be considered to have the necessary breadth unless the vital topics of linear programming (to quote from one of the papers: \u201cundoubtedly the optimization problem solved most
