Alternative bounding approximations for the global optimization of various engineering design problems

Abstract

This paper presents a general overview of the global optimization algorithm by Quesada and Grossmann (1993a) for solving NLP problems involving linear fractional and bilinear terms, and it explores the use of alternative bounding approximations. These are applied in the global optimization of problems arising in different engineering areas and for which… (More)
