Optimization

`ALIAS` is also able to deal with optimization problem. Let
consider a scalar function of variables
, called the *optimum function*
and
assume that you are looking for the global minimal or maximal
value of when the
unknowns lie in some ranges.
Furthermore the unknowns may be submitted to constraints
of type , constraints of type
and constraints of type .
Note that
may have interval
coefficients.
