By M. Avriel (auth.), Mordecai Avriel (eds.)

In 1961, C. Zener, then Director of technology at Westinghouse Corpora­ tion, and a member of the U. S. nationwide Academy of Sciences who has made vital contributions to physics and engineering, released a quick article within the court cases of the nationwide Academy of Sciences entitled" A Mathe­ matical reduction in Optimizing Engineering layout. " listed here Zener thought of the matter of discovering an optimum engineering layout that may usually be expressed because the challenge of minimizing a numerical price functionality, termed a "generalized polynomial," along with a sum of phrases, the place each one time period is a made of a good consistent and the layout variables, raised to arbitrary powers. He saw that if the variety of phrases exceeds the variety of variables by way of one, the optimum values of the layout variables could be simply chanced on via fixing a collection of linear equations. in addition, sure invariances of the relative contribution of every time period to the complete rate will be deduced. The mathematical intricacies in Zener's technique quickly raised the interest of R. J. Duffin, the celebrated mathematician from Carnegie­ Mellon college who joined forces with Zener in laying the rigorous mathematical foundations of optimizing generalized polynomials. Interes­ tingly, the research of optimality stipulations and houses of the optimum suggestions in such difficulties have been performed through Duffin and Zener via inequalities, instead of the extra universal strategy of the Kuhn-Tucker theory.

Contrary to popular belief, geometric programming is not just a special technique for studying the very important class of posynomial (optimization) problems. It is really a very general mathematical theory that is especially useful for studying a large class of separable problems.
