Abstract : A unifying framework of concepts central to the optimization of large structured systems is developed and used in the organization of the literature. The basic concepts are divided in two groups, (1) problem manipulations, in which a given problem is restated in an alternative form more amenable to solution, and (2) solution strategies which reduce an optimization problem to a related sequence of simpler problems that can be solved by specialized methods.
