    Wiley 2009; US$ 180.00

    A path-breaking account of Markov decision processes-theory and computation This book's clear presentation of theory, numerous chapter-end problems, and development of a unified method for the computation of optimal policies in both discrete and continuous time make it an excellent course text for graduate students and advanced undergraduates. Its... more...

  • Nonlinear Analysis and Variational Problemsby Panos M. Pardalos

    Springer 2010; US$ 229.00

    The chapters in this volume, written by international experts from different fields of mathematics, are devoted to honoring George Isac, a renowned mathematician. These contributions focus on recent developments in complementarity theory, variational principles, stability theory of functional equations, nonsmooth optimization, and several other important... more...

  • Flexible Shift Planning in the Service Industryby Jens O. Brunner

    Springer 2010; US$ 109.00

    The book presents new ideas to model and solve the flexible shift planning problem of personnel workers in the service industry. First, a new modeling approach is proposed that requires shifts to be generated implicitly rather than employing a predefined set of shift types like three 8-hour or two 12-hour shifts to cover varying forecast demand. The... more...

  • Optimization on Metric and Normed Spacesby Alexander J Zaslavski

    Springer 2010; US$ 199.00

    Optimization on Metric and Normed Spaces is devoted to the recent progress in optimization on Banach spaces and complete metric spaces. Optimization problems are usually considered on metric spaces satisfying certain compactness assumptions which guarantee the existence of solutions and convergence of algorithms. This book considers spaces that do... more...

    Springer 2010; US$ 239.00

    Energy is one of the world's most challenging problems, and power systems are an important aspect of energy-related issues. The Handbook of Power Systems contains state-of-the-art contributions on power systems modeling. In particular, it covers topics like operation planning, expansion planning, transmission and distribution modelling, computing... more...

  • Decision Making Under Uncertainty in Electricity Marketsby Antonio J. Conejo; Miguel Carrion; Juan M. Morales

    Springer 2010; US$ 349.00

    Decision Making Under Uncertainty in Electricity Markets provides models and procedures to be used by electricity market agents to make informed decisions under uncertainty. These procedures rely on well established stochastic programming models, which make them efficient and robust. Particularly, these techniques allow electricity producers to derive... more...

  • Stochastic Programmingby George B. Dantzig; Gerd Infanger

    Springer 2010; US$ 259.00

    From the Preface: "The preparation of this book started in 2004, when George B. Dantzig and I, following a long-standing invitation by Fred Hillier to contribute a volume to his "International Series in Operations Research and Management Science", decided finally to go ahead with editing a volume on stochastic programming. The field... more...

  • Handbook of Metaheuristicsby Michel Gendreau; Jean-Yves Potvin

    Springer 2010; US$ 279.00

    The first edition of the "Handbook of Metaheuristics" was published in 2003 under the editorship of Fred Glover and Gary A. Kochenberger. Given the numerous developments observed in the field of metaheuristics in recent years, it appeared that the time was ripe for a second edition of the Handbook. When Glover and Kochenberger were unable... more...
