Solutions Manual

* Username and password are required to access to the contents

The Solutions Manual provide here is intended as an aid to instructors that use the textbook Principles of Optimal Design: Modeling and Computation, Third Edition by Panos Y. Papalambros and Douglass J. Wilde, published by Cambridge University Press, New York, 2017. It has solutions for most of the exercise problems contained in the textbook. The solutions were composed by graduate students at the University of Michigan based on material accumulated over several years of instruction. Dr. Jeongwoo Han made the initial compilation, typing and corrections. Several other members of the Optimal Design Laboratory and students in the course have continued to contribute to this manual. I would like to express my great appreciation to all these past students for this rather thankless job - often in the middle of their research studies.
In spite of our efforts, some errors may still persist. Also, many problems can be solved in more than one ways. Instructors or students that discover any needed corrections or omissions, or have comments to offer, should communicate them to me (pyp@umich.edu). Such input is very valuable and will be greatly appreciated.
