In mathematics, computer science and operations research, mathematical optimization (alternatively, mathematical programming or simply, optimization) is the selection of a best element (with regard to some criterion) from some set of available alternatives.

Property Value
dbo:abstract
• In mathematics, computer science and operations research, mathematical optimization (alternatively, mathematical programming or simply, optimization) is the selection of a best element (with regard to some criterion) from some set of available alternatives. In the simplest case, an optimization problem consists of maximizing or minimizing a real function by systematically choosing input values from within an allowed set and computing the value of the function. The generalization of optimization theory and techniques to other formulations comprises a large area of applied mathematics. More generally, optimization includes finding "best available" values of some objective function given a defined domain (or input), including a variety of different types of objective functions and different types of domains.
