Operations research exercises are optimization. Survival of the fittest is optimization. When optimization as constrained optimisation principle or operation is used in economic analysis or practice, it is only an application.

Optimization is an exercise in finding a point or a collection of points or a region that you prefer to have in comparison to other points away from it. Additionally, optimization algorithms can be divided into numeric and symbolic exact algorithms. It can still be solved in polynomial time by the ellipsoid method constrained optimisation the objective function is convex ; otherwise the problem is NP hard.

Constraint optimization problems[ edit ] Branch and bound[ edit ] Constraint optimization can be solved by branch and bound algorithms. These are backtracking algorithms storing the cost of the best solution found during execution and using it to avoid part of the search. More constrained optimisation, whenever the algorithm encounters a partial solution that cannot be constrained optimisation to form a solution of better cost than the stored best cost, the algorithm backtracks, instead of trying to extend this solution.

Inequality constraints[ edit ] With inequality constraints, the problem can be characterized in terms of the geometric optimality conditionsFritz John conditions and Karush—Kuhn—Tucker conditionsunder which constrained optimisation problems may be solvable.

Linear programming[ edit ] If the objective function and all of the hard constraints are linear and some hard constraints are inequalities, then the problem is a linear programming problem.

This can be solved by the simplex methodwhich usually works in polynomial time in the problem size but is not guaranteed to, or by interior point methods which are guaranteed to work in polynomial time.

Quadratic programming[ edit ] If all the hard constraints are linear constrained optimisation some are inequalities, but the objective function is quadratic, the problem is a quadratic programming problem.
