Model development and optimization in interactive computing environments
Integrated computing systems—such as Maple, Mathematica, and MATLAB—enable the development of “live” electronic documents that include explanatory text, calculations, custom programming (code development), visualization, and other features. As a result, teachers and students, researchers and practitioners can develop applications in a completely interactive format. Such e-documents can be put to good use in developing textbooks, lecture notes, assignments and presentations, as well as in the context of research and development (R&D) projects. The interactive approach accelerates and enhances the process of learning and research. To illustrate this approach, we discuss a nonlinear (global and local) optimization software product and a topical electronic book that support interactive model development and optimization in Maple. We highlight the key features of the e-book and the software, present illustrative examples, and point towards a range of scientific and engineering applications. Copyright Springer-Verlag 2008
