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.

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.
