1. Introduction

Download our book from https://thomasweise.github.io/oa/optimization_algorithms.pdf.

With the book "Optimization Algorithms" we try to develop an accessible and easy-to-read introduction to optimization, optimization algorithms, and, in particular, metaheuristics. We will do this by first building a general framework structure for optimization problems. We then approach the algorithms that have been developed to solve such problems from bottom-up, starting with simple approaches and step-by-step moving to more advanced methods.
