“How can we find an absolute maximum or minimum using an algorithm?”
Finding the absolute maximum and minimum of the function is one of the most important applications of mathematics. However, sometimes this may not be a straightforward task. So how can we use our mathematical mindsets to figure this out? Well, we could start with a few local points. We can then find how good these points are by applying a local function, and then iterate to find new points. We can repeat this process again and again until we arrive at the absolute maximum or minimum. This procedure is known as a Genetic Algorithm and can be applied to all forms of engineering problems, whether it be in energy control systems or aerospace maneuvering.
