A Note on a Class of Optimization Problems in System Engineering
In this technical note, we develop an approach to globally solve a class of optimization problems in system engineering based on the recent paper (). Actually the problem we investigated is more general, since we extend numerators and denominators of linear ratios to generalized polynomial functions. And we give a new linear relaxation method for obtaining the lower bound of problems. Our approach is easy to be implemented, since it need not additional special program to the upper and lower bound for numerator and denominator of each generalized polynomial ratio.
