#### Optimization and Control with Applications

Springer 2006; US$ 289.00This book contains refereed papers which were presented at the 34th Workshop of the International School of Mathematics "G. Stampacchia," the International Workshop on Optimization and Control with Applications. The book contains 28 papers that are grouped according to four broad topics: duality and optimality conditions, optimization algorithms,... more...

#### Practical Mathematical Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2005; US$ 89.95Presents basic optimization principles and gradient-based algorithms to a general audience. This work pays attention to the difficulties - such as noise, discontinuities, expense of function evaluations, and the existence of multiple minima - that often unnecessarily inhibit the use of gradient-based methods. more...

#### Essays and Surveys in Global Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2005; US$ 129.00Global optimization aims at solving the general problems of deterministic mathematical programming: to find the global optimum of a nonlinear, nonconvex, multivariate function of continuous and/or integer variables. This book examines its mathematical capability, power, and solutions to many fields in the applied sciences. more...

#### Graph Theory and Combinatorial Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2005; US$ 129.00The techniques of graph theory have been used in solving many classical problems. This book explores the field's classical foundations and its developing theories, ideas and applications to new problems. It also examines the geometric properties of graph theory and its widening uses in combinatorial optimization theory and application. more...

#### Global Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 199.00Addresses the following topics: descriptions of implementations of general-purpose or problem-specific global optimization algorithms; algorithms in global optimization, some with numerical results and a discussion of the implementation; and surveys discussing software packages. more...

#### Multiscale Optimization Methods and Applications

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 199.00As 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...

#### Handbook on Modelling for Discrete Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 209.00Aims 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...

#### Foundations of Generic Optimization

Springer 2006; US$ 139.00The 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...
