The development of modeling systems for optimization has three major phases. The first one centers on the generation of algorithms and on their computational limits (convergence properties and computational complexity). The second phase focuses on modeling technologies out of which those based on algebraically oriented languages are widely accepted as the best way to represent and solve large-scale linear or nonlinear optimization problems. The third phase belongs to real applications from a large variety of domains, when using these analytic tools (modeling and optimization) for making better decisions in large and complex environments.
