Generalized Geometric Programming : Computational Studies

  • Christodoulos A. Floudas
Part of the Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications book series (NOIA, volume 37)


This chapter presents extensive computational studies of the global optimization approach for generalized geometric programming (GGP) problems presented in Chapter 8. A number of engineering design problems are addressed for which convergence to an ∈-global minimum is guaranteed. A framework for checking the stability of given control strategies is presented which requires the solution of (GGP) problems, and a number of stability analysis examples are considered. The deterministic global optimization algorithm introduced in Chapter 8 has been implemented with the modeling language GAMS (Brooke et al., 1992) and computational times are reported for all examples on a HP—730 workstation.
