This book consists mainly of the descriptions of a large number of algorithms for solving mathematical programming problems. The authors state in the preface that "Because of the fast growth of the theory and applications of optimization in the past decade, there has been a need for critical review in this area, which would serve at least two purposes: to be a manual for practitioners and an orderly description of the state of the art." The book does serve these two purposes quite well, and especially the first of these.
