Nonlinear Optimization: Techniques for Engineering

Date Location Price
2020 Mar 26 - 27 Stillwater, OK $559

This two-day workshop will be a practical guide for those using multivariable, constraint handling, nonlinear optimization. Most exercises are for 2-dimensional applications for visual understanding of the surfaces and methods, but the methods and techniques are scalable to high dimension. Several N-D examples will be provided. Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Define the objective function (cost function)
  • Incorporate constraints (either hard or appropriately weighted penalties)
  • Choose an appropriate optimizer for application attributes
  • Choose appropriate convergence criteria and thresholds
  • Choose initialization and number of trials to be confident in finding the global optimum
