A framework for managing models in nonlinear optimization of computationally expensive functions
One of the most significant problems in the application of standard optimization methods to real-world engineering design problems is that the computation of the objective function often takes so much computer time (sometimes ...

Cone manifolds in three-dimensional topology applications to branched covers
Cone manifolds are defined and several standard geometric techniques for Riemannian manifolds are generalized to this setting. Smoothing techniques for approximating cone manifolds by smooth Riemannian manifolds with bounded ...
