The Optimization Package

The Optimization package provides commands to find the minimum or maximum of various types of functions subject to various types of constraints.  This worksheet provides a few basic examples of each type of problem the package is capable of solving.  Further information can be found on the help pages for the package and each of the individual package members.

In this worksheet, we will be minimizing a function (referred to as the objective function) subject to a number of constraints.  Certain maximize examples are included as well.  In any of the examples, the maximize option can be added to the command to find the maximum instead of the minimum.  

Also note that in each case we are only finding a locally optimal value.
