Introduction to Theory of Optimization in Euclidean Space is intended to provide students with a robust introduction to optimization in Euclidean space, demonstrating the theoretical aspects of the subject whilst also providing clear proofs and applications.
Students are taken progressively through the development of the proofs, where they have the occasion to practice tools of differentiation (Chain rule, Taylor formula) for functions of several variables in abstract situations.
Throughout this book, students will learn the necessity of referring to important results established in advanced Algebra and Analysis courses.

"This book fills in the gap between the advanced, theoretical books on abstract Hilbert spaces, and the more practical books intended for Engineers, where theorems lack proofs. The author presents many theorems, along with their proofs, in a simple way and provides many examples and graphical illustrations to allow students grasp the material in an easy and quick way."
-Prof. Salim Aissa Salah Messaoudi, University of Sharjah, UAE
