Optimization technology has practical applications in almost every branch of science, business and engineering. Indeed, a large variety of the quantitative issues such as decision-making, design, operation, planning, and scheduling arising in science, engineering, and economics can be perceived and modeled as nonlinear optimization problems. From a practical viewpoint, there are strong motivations to develop effective methods for finding the global optimal solution. I and my research team members have been developing a novel paradigm over the past 20 years, termed Trust-Tech, for general nonlinear optimization. Trust-Tech methodology has been applied to machine learning, optimal power flow, network partition, data clustering, signal processing, artificial neural network and was awarded five patents. In this talk, I will present an overview of Trust-Tech and its theoretical basis. The second part of this talk will be focused on practical applications and some use cases. In addition, a new class of meta-heuristic-assisted Trust-Tech optimization methodology will be presented.
