Mathematical Programming and Control Theory | SpringerLinkMathematical optimization alternatively spelled optimisation or mathematical programming is the selection of a best element with regard to some criterion from some set of available alternatives. In the simplest case, an optimization problem consists of maximizing or minimizing a real function by systematically choosing input values from within an allowed set and computing the value of the function. The generalization of optimization theory and techniques to other formulations constitutes a large area of applied mathematics. More generally, optimization includes finding "best available" values of some objective function given a defined domain or input , including a variety of different types of objective functions and different types of domains. Such a formulation is called an optimization problem or a mathematical programming problem a term not directly related to computer programming , but still in use for example in linear programming — see History below.
