Abstract:

This series of lectures on optimization techniques was originally prepared for presentation to the participants of the 1959 Associate Staff Training Program. Its objectives were two-fold a to introduce engineers to the usefulness of mathematical techniques and mathematicians to the applicability of their techniques to concrete engineering problems and b to introduce all the trainees to the very important concept of optimization--a concept that currently pervades virtually every area of advanced missile engineering.
