Mathematical optimization

Most popular at the top

  • Nonlinear Optimization with Financial Applicationsby Michael Bartholomew-Biggs

    Springer 2005; US$ 139.00

    The book introduces the key ideas behind practical nonlinear optimization. Computational finance ? an increasingly popular area of mathematics degree programs ? is combined here with the study of an important class of numerical techniques. The financial content of the book is designed to be relevant and interesting to specialists. However, this material... more...

  • Handbook of Combinatorial Optimizationby Ding-Zhu Du

    Springer 2006; US$ 259.00

    This is a supplementary volume to the major three-volume Handbook of Combinatorial Optimization set, as well as the Supplement Volume A. It can also be regarded as a stand-alone volume which presents chapters dealing with various aspects of the subject, including optimization problems and algorithmic approaches for discrete problems more...

  • Global Optimizationby Leo Liberti; Nelson Maculan

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 199.00

    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...

  • Graphs, Networks and Algorithmsby Dieter Jungnickel

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 79.95

    This text is aimed at anyone who has to teach combinatorial optimisation. It is very helpful for students, teachers, and researchers in this area. The author finds a synthesis of nice and interesting mathematical results and practical applications. more...

  • Multiscale Optimization Methods and Applicationsby William W. Hager; Shu-Jen Huang; Panos M. Pardalos

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 199.00

    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...

  • Multidisciplinary Methods for Analysis Optimization and Control of Complex Systemsby Vincenzo Capasso; Jaques Périaux

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 189.00

    This book consists of lecture notes of a summer school named after the late Jacques Louis Lions. The summer school was designed to alert both Academia and Industry to the increasing role of multidisciplinary methods and tools for the design of complex products in various areas of socio-economic intereSt. This volume offers the reader a rare opportunity... more...

  • Real Optimization with SAP APOby Josef Kallrath; Thomas I. Maindl

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 139.00

    Describes and demonstrates how SAP APO can be used to tackle real optimization problems arising in industry. This book is suitable for graduates in the economic sciences, business and operations research, but also mathematicians and physicists with interest in solving real optimization problems. more...

  • Handbook on Modelling for Discrete Optimizationby Gautam Appa; Leonidas Pitsoulis; H.Paul Williams

    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...

  • Foundations of Generic Optimizationby M. Iglesias; B. Naudts; A. Verschoren

    Springer 2006; US$ 139.00

    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...

  • Recent Advances in Optimizationby Alberto Seeger

    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...
