Abstract

Lagrange multipliers, penalty methods, and Kuhn-Tucker's theory are some important mathematical tools used in optimization problems. These tools are discussed so that one can appreciate the current areas of optimization research. Moreover, since extensive research work exists for linear optimization problems, only nonlinear applications are discussed.
