# Optimization in Practice with MATLAB®

## For Engineering Students and Professionals

Achille Messac, Mississippi State University
Textbook
Optimization in Practice with MATLAB® provides a unique approach to optimization education. It is accessible to both junior and senior undergraduate and graduate students, as well as industry practitioners. It provides a strongly practical perspective that allows the student to be ready to use optimization in the workplace. It covers traditional materials, as well as important topics previously unavailable in optimization books (e.g. numerical essentials - for successful optimization). Written with both the reader and the instructor in mind, Optimization…
