4.0 out of 5 stars One of the few published references on Karmarkar's algorithm, 20 May 2003
By 
C. A. Russell "bombo2000" (London, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: An Introduction to Optimization (Wiley Series in Discrete Mathematics and Optimization) (Hardcover)
I bought this book because I needed to do some research on Karmarkar's algorithm. The chapter on Karmarkar was very helpful and clearly stated. Would recommend for anyone interested in Optimization or University courses.

4.0 out of 5 stars took the class, liked the book, 29 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: An Introduction to Optimization (Wiley Series in Discrete Mathematics and Optimization) (Hardcover)
Drs. Chong and Zak are Professors of Electrical Engineering at Purdue, and Dr. Chong was the instructor for the ECE grad level optimization class when I took it spring '97. The book alone is good, detailed and rigorous enough for a graduate course without sacrificing readability or in-chapter examples. However, without the MATLAB examples that were developed by the authors to accompany lectures and illustrate each optimization method covered, the material might be a little abstract or dry for self-teaching. An excellent introduction or reference nonetheless, those without a solid base in linear algebra should keep a reference text handy while reading.
