  • Interior Point Algorithmsby Yinyu Ye

    Wiley 2011; US$ 223.00 US$ 193.27

    The first comprehensive review of the theory and practice of one of today's most powerful optimization techniques. The explosive growth of research into and development of interior point algorithms over the past two decades has significantly improved the complexity of linear programming and yielded some of today's most sophisticated computing techniques.... more...

  • Combinatorial Optimizationby William J. Cook; William H. Cunningham; William R. Pulleyblank; Alexander Schrijver

    Wiley 2011; US$ 198.00 US$ 171.60

    A complete, highly accessible introduction to one of today's most exciting areas of applied mathematics One of the youngest, most vital areas of applied mathematics, combinatorial optimization integrates techniques from combinatorics, linear programming, and the theory of algorithms. Because of its success in solving difficult problems in areas... more...

  • Optimization Methods for Logical Inferenceby Vijay Chandru; John Hooker

    Wiley 2011; US$ 183.00 US$ 158.60

    Merging logic and mathematics in deductive inference-an innovative, cutting-edge approach. Optimization methods for logical inference? Absolutely, say Vijay Chandru and John Hooker, two major contributors to this rapidly expanding field. And even though "solving logical inference problems with optimization methods may seem a bit like eating sauerkraut... more...

  • Network Models in Optimization and Their Applications in Practiceby Fred Glover; Darwin Klingman; Nancy V. Phillips

    Wiley 2011; US$ 240.00 US$ 208.00

    Unique in that it focuses on formulation and case studies rather than solutions procedures covering applications for pure, generalized and integer networks, equivalent formulations plus successful techniques of network models. Every chapter contains a simple model which is expanded to handle more complicated developments, a synopsis of existing applications,... more...

  • Optimizationby H. Ronald Miller

    Wiley 2011; US$ 150.00 US$ 130.00

    A thorough and highly accessible resource for analysts in a broad range of social sciences. Optimization: Foundations and Applications presents a series of approaches to the challenges faced by analysts who must find the best way to accomplish particular objectives, usually with the added complication of constraints on the available choices. Award-winning... more...

  • Heuristische Suche in komplexen Strukturenby Albrecht Fritzsche

    Gabler Verlag 2009; US$ 50.13

    Am Beispiel Genetischer Algorithmen in der Automobilproduktion zeigt Albrecht Fritzsche auf, welche Möglichkeiten solche Suchverfahren zur Verbesserung von Planung und Steuerung in der Praxis eröffnen. more...

  • Shape-Preserving Approximation by Real and Complex Polynomialsby Sorin G. Gal; George A. Anastassiou

    Birkhäuser Boston 2010; US$ 97.54

    In many problems arising in engineering and science one requires approxi- tion methods to reproduce physical reality as well as possible. Very schema- cally, if the input data represents a complicated discrete/continuous quantity of information, of ?shape? S (S could mean, for example, that we have a ?monotone/convex? collection of data), then one... more...

  • Minisum Hyperspheresby Mark-Christoph Körner

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 108.47

    This book presents a self-contained introduction to the theory of minisum hyperspheres. It is the first book dedicated to this topic, and includes an overview of the theory as well problem-solving strategies. more...

  • Nonlinear Optimizationby Andrzej Ruszczynski

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 105.00 US$ 95.55

    Optimization is one of the most important areas of modern applied mathematics, with applications in fields from engineering and economics to finance, statistics, management science, and medicine. While many books have addressed its various aspects, Nonlinear Optimization is the first comprehensive treatment that will allow graduate students and... more...

  • Quantitative Methods in Corpus-Based Translation Studiesby Michael P. Oakes; Meng Ji

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2012; US$ 54.00

    The present study addresses the long-standing issue in corpus-based translation studies that translated texts differ from non-translated texts in the same language, irrespective of text type or source language. We investigate whether this claim is empirically verifiable for a variety of lexical variables in different Dutch varieties or lects (different... more...
