Engineering Books on optimization problems

  1. Apr 12, 2015 #1
    I am in search of (elementary) books which contains subject on the optimization problem. I'm not an electrical engineering student though so I don't know if that subject is typically taught in undergrad or grad level. But in case there is undergrad book that meets that condition, I would prefer such. What I'm interested in is particularly the convex optimization problem, among the three main optimization problems as far as I know.

    The canonical book on convex optimization is Convex Optimization by Boyd and Vandenberghe, downloadable for free. Boyd also has videos and slides from his Stanford class, which follows the book. It's a graduate-level book and class.

    Linear Programming and Network Flows by Bazaraa, Jarvis, and Sherali is a nice book.

    Other than that, you can try Operations Research by H.A. Taha.
