- Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 179.00
Addresses the following topics: descriptions of implementations of general-purpose or problem-specific global optimization algorithms; algorithms in global optimization, some with numerical results and a discussion of the implementation; and surveys discussing software packages. more...

As optimization researchers tackle larger and larger problems, scale interactions play an increasingly important role. One general strategy for dealing with a large or difficult problem is to partition it into smaller ones, which are hopefully much easier to solve, and then work backwards towards the solution of original problem, using a solution from... more...
- Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 209.00
Aims to demonstrate and detail the pervasive nature of Discrete Optimization. This book utilizes the tools of mathematical modeling, optimization, and integer programming to solve a range of problems. It is intended for researchers in the domains of the Computer Science, Math Programming, Applied Mathematics, Engineering, and Operations Research. more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 149.00
Gives an overview of research done in optimization and related areas, such as optimal control, calculus of variations, and game theory. This book not only addresses abstract issues of optimization theory, but is also concerned with the modeling and computer resolution of specific optimization problems, arising in industry and applied sciences. more...

The success of a genetic algorithm when applied to an optimization problem depends upon several features present or absent in the problem to be solved, including the quality of the encoding of data, the geometric structure of the search space, deception or epistasis. This book deals essentially with the latter notion, presenting for the first time... more...

Professor Franco Giannessi has been working on an approach to optimization theory based on image space analysis. This book unites his results and presents optimization theory and variational inequalities in their light. It also presents an approach to the theory of constrained extremum problems. more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 119.00
Local search has been applied successively to a diverse collection of optimization problems, and in many cases with considerable success. Serving as a source of inspiration for the development of novel results in the challenging field of local search, this book presents a large collection of theoretical results. more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 109.00
Focusing on the study of nonsmooth vector functions, this book presents a comprehensive account of the calculus of generalized Jacobian matrices and their applications to continuous nonsmooth optimization problems and variational inequalities in finite dimensions. more...
- Springer 2007; US$ 149.00
Contains chapters which are organized into parts on simulated annealing, tabu search, ant colony algorithms, general-purpose studies of evolutionary algorithms, applications of evolutionary algorithms, and various metaheuristics. This book gathers contributions related to: theoretical developments in metaheuristics; and software implementations. more...
