  • Foundations of Generic Optimizationby Robert Lowen; Alain Verschoren

    Springer 2007; US$ 119.00

    This is a comprehensive overview of the basics of fuzzy control, which also brings together some recent research results in soft computing, in particular fuzzy logic using genetic algorithms and neural networks. This book offers researchers not only a solid background but also a snapshot of the current state of the art in this field. more...

  • Feasibility and Infeasibility in Optimizationby John W. Chinneck

    Springer 2007; US$ 169.00

    Constrained optimization models are core tools in business, science, government, and the military with applications including airline scheduling, control of petroleum refining operations, investment decisions, and many others. Constrained optimization models have grown immensely in scale and complexity in recent years as inexpensive computing power... more...

  • Invexity and Optimizationby Shashi Kant Mishra; Giorgio Giorgi

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

    Invexity and Optimization presents results on invex function and their properties in smooth and nonsmooth cases, pseudolinearity and eta-pseudolinearity. Results on optimality and duality for a nonlinear scalar programming problem are presented, second and higher order duality results are given for a nonlinear scalar programming problem, and saddle... more...

  • Metaheuristicsby Karl F. Doerner; Michel Gendreau; Peter Greistorfer

    Springer 2007; US$ 149.00

    Aims to provide several different kinds of information: a delineation of general metaheuristics methods, a number of articles from a variety of well-known classical application areas as well as an outlook to modern computational methods. This book serves as a reference for people interested in engineering or social sciences. more...

  • Fermat Days 85by J.-B. Hiriart-Urruty

    Elsevier Science 1986; US$ 72.95

    Optimization, as examined here, ranges from differential equations to problems arising in Mechanics and Statistics. The main topics covered are: calculations of variations and nonlinear elasticity, optimal control, analysis and optimization in problems dealing with nondifferentiable data, duality techniques, algorithms in mathematical programming and... more...

  • Mathematics of Optimizationby Giorgio Giorgi; A. Guerraggio; J. Thierfelder

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 210.00

    The book is intended for people (graduates, researchers, but also undergraduates with a good mathematical background) involved in the study of (static) optimization problems (in finite-dimensional spaces). It contains a lot of material, from basic tools of convex analysis to optimality conditions for smooth optimization problems, for non smooth optimization... more...

  • Optimization with PDE Constraintsby Rene Pinnau; Michael Ulbrich

    Springer 2008; US$ 119.00

    Presents an introduction of pde constrained optimization. This book provides a precise functional analytic treatment via optimality conditions and a non-smooth algorithmical framework. It also presents structure-exploiting discrete concepts and large scale, practically relevant applications. more...
