| Global Optimization with Maple
By Dr. John Wass
“With the advent of tools such as the Global Optimization Toolbox (GOT), life got a lot simpler not only on the purely computational end, but also for understanding by the end user.”
“Upon entering several simple trigonometric functions, GOT correctly computed the global (not local) extremum and, as an option, displayed the results on the plot. This can be accomplished easily with the command line or the Global Optimization Assistant. This Assistant is a very useful dialog box that permits easy entry of objective functions as well as constraints and bounds.”
