  • Applications Of Multi-objective Evolutionary Algorithmsby Carlos A. Coello; Gary B. Lamont

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 218.00

    This book presents an extensive variety of multi-objective problems across diverse disciplines, along with statistical solutions using multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs). The topics discussed serve to promote a wider understanding as well as the use of MOEAs, the aim being to find good solutions for high-dimensional real-world design applications.... more...

  • BigNum Mathby Tom St Denis

    Elsevier Science 2006; US$ 49.95

    Implementing cryptography requires integers of significant magnitude to resist cryptanalytic attacks. Modern programming languages only provide support for integers which are relatively small and single precision. The purpose of this text is to instruct the reader regarding how to implement efficient multiple precision algorithms. Bignum math is the... more...

  • The Practical Handbook of Genetic Algorithmsby Lance D. Chambers

    CRC Press 2000; US$ 231.00

    Rapid developments in the field of genetic algorithms along with the popularity of the first edition precipitated this completely revised, thoroughly updated second edition of The Practical Handbook of Genetic Algorithms. Like its predecessor, this edition helps practitioners stay up to date on recent developments in the field and provides material... more...

  • Handbooks in Operations Research and Management Scienceby R. Weismantel; K. Aardal; George L. Nemhauser

    Elsevier Science 2005; US$ 270.00

    The chapters of this Handbook volume cover nine main topics that are representative of recent theoretical and algorithmic developments in the field. In addition to the nine papers that present the state of the art, there is an article on the early history of the field. The handbook will be a useful reference to experts in the field as well as students... more...

  • Models and Algorithms for Global Optimizationby Aimo Törn; Julius ?ilinskas

    Springer US 2007; US$ 174.19

    Antanas ~ilinskas was born on January 5, 1946 in Lithuania. He graduated with a gold medal from 2nd Kaunas Gymnasium in 1963 and with a distinction diploma of Electrical Engineering from Kaunas University of Technology in 1968. His Ph. D. studies (aspirantur) at Lithuanian Academy of Sciences lasted from 1970 to 1973. The Candidate of Sciences (Ph.... more...

  • Metaheuristics:by Toshihide Ibaraki; Koji Nonobe; Mutsunori Yagiura

    Springer US 2006; US$ 141.52

    Our globalized world brings us increasing complexity and many computationally hard problems. Metaheuristics are mathematical optimization methods that have become a powerful answer to many of these difficult problems. As a growing set of robust methods, Metaheuristics is producing effective algorithms that compute approximate solutions of high quality... more...

  • Graph Theory and Combinatorial Optimizationby David Avis; Alain Hertz; Odile Marcotte

    Springer US 2005; US$ 97.97

    Graph theory is very much tied to the geometric properties of optimization and combinatorial optimization. Moreover, graph theory's geometric properties are at the core of many research interests in operations research and applied mathematics. Its techniques have been used in solving many classical problems including maximum flow problems, independent... more...

  • Foundations of Generic Optimizationby R. Lowen; M. Iglesias; B. Naudts; A. Verschoren; C. Vidal

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 94.71

    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...

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

    Springer US 2006; US$ 152.41

    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... more...

  • Variational Methods in Shape Optimization Problemsby Dorin Bucur; Giuseppe Buttazzo

    Birkhäuser Boston 2006; US$ 65.54

    The fascinating ?eld of shape optimization problems has received a lot of attention in recent years, particularly in relation to a number of applications in physics and engineering that require a focus on shapes instead of parameters or functions. The goal of these applications is to deform and modify the admissible shapes in order to comply with a... more...
