I was wondering what "anti-optimization" is about? Is it related to optimization? What topics does it cover?
All I can find out from Google is this paper. It looks like having some relation with probability and optimization?
Thanks and regards!
Anti-optimization is a term popularized by Isaac Elishakoff for an approach to safety factors in engineering structures which he describes as pessimistic and searching for least favourable responses, in combination with optimistization techniques but in contrast to probabilistic approaches.
