FletcherJohn Wiley andamp; Sons, 1980: blue hardcover : gilt lettering to spine: 120 pages including index. Synopsis: The first of a two-volume work presenting those aspects of optimisation which are of foremost importance in solving practical problems. Volume 1 presents unconstrained optimisation and starts by examining the overall structure of methods, covering the quasi-Newton, conjugate gradient , Levenberg- Marquardt method techniques , and others. The associated subjects of non-linear least-squares, data fitting , and non-linear equations are studied in detail. The material is suitable for teaching courses at various levels, and the text includes frequent worked examples and questions which illustrate and extend the text.
