Infinite-Dimensional Optimization and Convexity

In this volume, Ekeland and Turnbull are mainly concerned with existence theory. They seek to determine whether, when given an optimization problem consisting of minimizing a functional over some feasible set, an optimal solution—a minimizer—may be found.
