In this text we discuss a computer-based approach to design optimization. With this approach, we use the computer to search for the best design according to criteria that we specify. Further, we employ sophisticated algorithms that enable the computer to efficiently search for the optimum.

Matlab is a language used by several computational packages known as m-file environments. This text introduces freshman engineering students to problem solving using an m-file environment. Most of the information applies to any environment.

The main purpose of the volume is an exposition of the principal methods of determining latitude, azimuth, and time. Generally speaking, the limit of precision is that corresponding to the engineer's transit or the sextant.
