Convex analysis and nonlinear optimization : theory and examples by Jonathan M Borwein( Book )

27 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A cornerstone of modern optimization and analysis, convexity pervades applications ranging through engineering and computation to finance. This concise introduction to convex analysis and its extensions aims at first year graduate students, and includes many guided exercises. The corrected Second Edition adds a chapter emphasizing concrete models. New topics include monotone operator theory, Rademacher's theorem, proximal normal geometry, Chebyshev sets, and amenability. The final material on "partial smoothness" won a 2005 SIAM Outstanding Paper Prize. Jonathan M. Borwein, FRSC is Canada Research Chair in Collaborative Technology at Dalhousie University. A Fellow of the AAAS and a foreign member of the Bulgarian Academy of Science, he received his Doctorate from Oxford in 1974 as a Rhodes Scholar and has worked at Waterloo, Carnegie Mellon and Simon Fraser Universities. Recognition for his extensive publications in optimization, analysis and computational mathematics includes the 1993 Chauvenet prize. Adrian S. Lewis is a Professor in the School of Operations Research and Industrial Engineering at Cornell. Following his 1987 Doctorate from Cambridge, he has worked at Waterloo and Simon Fraser Universities. He received the 1995 Aisenstadt Prize, from the University of Montreal, and the 2003 Lagrange Prize for Continuous Optimization, from SIAM and the Mathematical Programming Society. About the First Edition: " ... a very rewarding book, and I highly recommend it ..."--M.J. Todd, in the International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control " ... a beautifully written book ... highly recommended ..."--Leaf Qi, in the Australian Mathematical Society Gazette "This book represents a tour de force for introducing so many topics of present interest in such a small space and with such clarity and elegance." - J.-P. Penot, in Canadian Mathematical Society Notes "There is a fascinating interweaving of theory and applications ..." - J.R. Giles, in Mathematical Reviews " ... an ideal introductory teaching text ..." - S. Cobzas, in Studia Universitatis Babes-Bolyai Mathematica
Convex analysis and nonlinear optimization : theory and examples by Jonathan M Borwein( Book )

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a concise account of convex analysis, its applications and extensions, for a broad audience. Blurring as it does the distinctions between mathematical optimization and modern analysis, the elegant language of convexity and duality is indispensable both in computational optimization and for understanding variational properties of functions and multifunctions. Primarily aimed at first-year graduate students, the text consists of short, self-contained sections, each followed by an extensive set of exercises, many of which are guided. The book is thus appropriate either as a class text or for self-study."--Jacket
