Generalized Geometric Programming : Theory
In this chapter, we discuss the theoretical and algorithmic issues in global optimization approaches for generalized geometric programming problems. This material is based on the work of Maranas and Floudas (1997). Section 8.1 provides an introduction to generalized geometric programming. Section 8.2 focuses on the theoretical analysis for the development of a global optimization approach. Section 8.3 presents the global optimization algorithm and its proof of convergence to an e-global optimum solution. Finally, section 8.4 presents an illustrative example.
