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...

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...

The quadratic cost optimal control problem for systems described by linear ordinary differential equations occupies a central role in the study of control systems, both from theoretical and design aspects. Divided into five parts, this book presents an account of quadratic cost optimal control for a large class of infinite dimensional systems. more...

The research of Antanas Zilinskas has focused on developing models for global optimization and applying the corresponding algorithms to practical problems. This book contains survey papers in which leading researchers from the field present various models and algorithms for solving global optimization problems. more...

The theory of adaptive control is concerned with construction of strategies so that the controlled system behaves in a desirable way, without assuming the complete knowledge of the system. The models considered in this comprehensive book are of Markovian type. Both partial observation and partial information cases are analyzed. While the book focuses... more...

This volume presents a comprehensive introduction into rigorous geometrical dynamics of complex systems of various natures. "Complex systems", in this book, are meant high-dimensional nonlinear systems, which can be (but not necessarily are) adaptive. This monograph proposes a unified geometrical approach to dynamics of complex systems of... more...

Uses techniques of Fourier series and functional analysis to deal with certain problems in differential equations. This book attempts to gather the available theory of the "nonharmonic Fourier series", combining results, to create a source of such material for practising applied mathematicians, engineers and other scientific professionals. more...

Provides a treatment of the theory of stochastic max-plus linear systems. This book addresses modeling issues and stability theory for stochastic max-plus systems. It also treats perturbation analysis of max-plus systems: a calculus for differentiation of max-plus systems is developed. more...
