  • The Robust Maximum Principleby Vladimir G. Boltyanski; Alexander S. Poznyak

    Springer 2011; US$ 149.00

    Covering some of the key areas of optimal control theory (OCT), a rapidly expanding field, the authors use new methods to set out a version of OCT's more refined 'maximum principle.' The results obtained have applications in production planning, reinsurance-dividend management, multi-model sliding mode control, and multi-model differential... more...

  • Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networksby My T. Thai; Panos M. Pardalos

    Springer 2012; US$ 209.00

    Complex Social Networks is a newly emerging (hot) topic with applications in a variety of domains, such as communication networks, engineering networks, social networks, and biological networks. In the last decade, there has been an explosive growth of research on complex real-world networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many disciplines,... more...

  • Handbook on Semidefinite, Conic and Polynomial Optimizationby Miguel F. Anjos; Jean B. Lasserre

    Springer 2011; US$ 279.00

    Semidefinite and conic optimization is a major and thriving research area within the optimization community. Although semidefinite optimization has been studied (under different names) since at least the 1940s, its importance grew immensely during the 1990s after polynomial-time interior-point methods for linear optimization were extended to solve... more...

  • Regularity Concepts in Nonsmooth Analysisby Messaoud Bounkhel

    Springer 2011; US$ 119.00

    The results presented in this book are a product of research conducted by the author independently and in collaboration with other researchers in the field. In this light, this work encompasses the most recent collection of various concepts of regularity and nonsmooth analysis into one monograph. The first part of the book attempts to present an accessible... more...

  • Control System Synthesisby Mathukumalli Vidyasagar

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2011; US$ 75.00

    This book introduces the so-called "stable factorization approach" to the synthesis of feedback controllers for linear control systems. The key to this approach is to view the multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) plant for which one wishes to design a controller as a matrix over the fraction field F associated with a commutative ring with identity, denoted... more...

  • Modern Optimization Techniques with Applications in Electric Power Systemsby Soliman Abdel-Hady Soliman; Abdel-Aal Hassan Mantawy

    Springer 2011; US$ 149.00

    This book presents the application of some AI related optimization techniques in the operation and control of electric power systems. With practical applications and examples the use of functional analysis, simulated annealing, Tabu-search, Genetic algorithms and fuzzy systems for the optimization of power systems is discussed in detail. Preliminary... more...

  • Topological Aspects of Nonsmooth Optimizationby Vladimir Shikhman

    Springer 2011; US$ 119.00

    This book deals with nonsmooth structures arising within the optimization setting. It considers four optimization problems, namely, mathematical programs with complementarity constraints, general semi-infinite programming problems, mathematical programs with vanishing constraints and bilevel optimization. The author uses the topological approach and... more...

  • Deterministic Global Optimizationby Daniel Scholz

    Springer 2011; US$ 119.00

    This monograph deals with a general class of solution approaches in deterministic global optimization, namely the geometric branch-and-bound methods which are popular algorithms, for instance, in Lipschitzian optimization, d.c. programming, and interval analysis.It also introduces a new concept for the rate of convergence and analyzes several bounding... more...

  • Fast Numerical Methods for Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Model-Predictive Controlby Christian Kirches

    Springer 2011; US$ 119.00

    Christian Kirches develops a fast numerical algorithm of wide applicability that efficiently solves mixed-integer nonlinear optimal control problems. He uses convexification and relaxation techniques to obtain computationally tractable reformulations for which feasibility and optimality certificates can be given even after discretization and rounding. more...
