  • Provides a comprehensive and contemporary book on Quadratic Programming (QP)
  • Begins with Geometrical Examples, then Portfolio Optimization, Linear Quality Constraints
  • Includes Quadratic Programming Solution, Dual Programming, General and Parametric Algorithms
  • Covers the Simplex Method for QP and Nonconvex QP


Quadratic programming is a mathematical technique that allows for the optimization of a quadratic function in several variables. QP is a subset of Operations Research and is the next higher lever of sophistication than Linear Programming. It is a key mathematical tool in Portfolio Optimization and structural plasticity. This is useful in Civil Engineering as well as Statistics.
