Questions on the optimization functions of Mathematica such as FindMinimum/FindMaximum, Minimize/Maximize, NMinimize/NMaximize, etc.

Mathematical optimization is a field of science/engineering that deals with minimizing/maximizing a real function (also called objective function or cost function) over a known domain, with or without additional constraints. This tag is a superset of subfields such as linear/non-linear/quadratic/integer programming, dynamic programming, convex optimization, etc.
