  • 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...

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

    Springer 2011; 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Optimization of Temporal Networks under Uncertaintyby Wolfram Wiesemann

    Springer 2012; US$ 139.00

    Many decision problems in Operations Research are defined on temporal networks, that is, workflows of time-consuming tasks whose processing order is constrained by precedence relations. For example, temporal networks are used to model projects, computer applications, digital circuits and production processes. Optimization problems arise in temporal... more...

  • Algebraic Modeling Systemsby Josef Kallrath

    Springer 2012; US$ 139.00

    This book Algebraic Modeling Systems -- Modeling and Solving Real World Optimization Problems -- deals with the aspects of modeling and solving real-world optimization problems in a unique combination. It treats systematically the major algebraic modeling languages (AMLs) and modeling systems (AMLs) used to solve mathematical optimization problems.... 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...

  • Informatics in Control, Automation and Roboticsby Honghua Tan

    Springer 2012; US$ 329.00

    Session 1 includes 109 papers selected from 2011 3rd International Asia Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and Robotics (CAR 2011), held on December 24-25, 2011, Shenzhen, China. This session will act as an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in and applications of Intelligent Control Systems.... more...
