#### 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...

#### Graphs, Networks and Algorithms

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 79.95This text is aimed at anyone who has to teach combinatorial optimisation. It is very helpful for students, teachers, and researchers in this area. The author finds a synthesis of nice and interesting mathematical results and practical applications. more...

#### Multidisciplinary Methods for Analysis Optimization and Control of Complex Systems

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 189.00This book consists of lecture notes of a summer school named after the late Jacques Louis Lions. The summer school was designed to alert both Academia and Industry to the increasing role of multidisciplinary methods and tools for the design of complex products in various areas of socio-economic intereSt. This volume offers the reader a rare opportunity... 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...

#### Real Optimization with SAP APO

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 139.00Describes and demonstrates how SAP APO can be used to tackle real optimization problems arising in industry. This book is suitable for graduates in the economic sciences, business and operations research, but also mathematicians and physicists with interest in solving real optimization problems. 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...
