Last summer, when I was visiting the University of Cambridge to present a seminar, I happened upon the university press bookstore.
And what did I find inside? A hardback copy of my 2006 book, Applied Optimization.
Even if you are in Cambridge, I do not advise you to buy the hardback copy. Instead, there is now an updated paperback copy available that includes corrections and additions. Click here to purchase.
There are a number of other optimization books out there, but if you want a careful introduction to optimization, convexity, and optimization, with multiple power systems case studies, please consider this book and the slides for my associated graduate course, “Optimization of Engineering Systems.”
