    This book is for beginners who are struggling to understand and optimize non-linear problems. The content will help readers gain an understanding and learn how to formulate real-world problems and will also give insight to many researchers for their future prospects.

    It proposes a mind map for conceptual understanding and includes sufficient solved examples for reader comprehension. The theory is explained in a lucid way. The variety of examples are framed to raise the thinking level of the reader and the formulation of real-world problems are included in the last chapter along with applications.

    The book is self-explanatory, well synchronized and written for undergraduate, post graduate and research scholars.

    1. One Dimensional Minimization/Maximization Problem. 2. Unconstrained Multivariable Optimization. 3. Constrained Multivariable Optimization. 4. Applications of Non-Linear Programming.
