  • 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...

  • Forward-Looking Decision Makingby Robert E. Hall

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 57.50

    Individuals and families make key decisions that impact many aspects of financial stability and determine the future of the economy. These decisions involve balancing current sacrifice against future benefits. People have to decide how much to invest in health care, exercise, their diet, and insurance. They must decide how much debt to take on, and... more...

  • Optimal Design and Related Areas in Optimization and Statisticsby Luc Pronzato; Anatoly A. Zhigljavsky

    Springer 2010; US$ 169.00

    This edited volume, dedicated to Henry P. Wynn, reflects his broad range of research interests, focusing in particular on the applications of optimal design theory in optimization and statistics. It covers algorithms for constructing optimal experimental designs, general gradient-type algorithms for convex optimization, majorization and stochastic... 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...

  • Transportation Systems Analysisby Ennio Cascetta

    Springer 2009; US$ 179.00

    This book provides a systematic and rigorous presentation of the theory of transportation systems and of the main methodologies for its application to transportation system engineering. Topics are presented with an increasing level of detail and complexity. Different selections of subjects can be used as the basis for undergraduate and postgraduate... 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...

  • IUTAM Symposium on Variational Concepts with Applications to the Mechanics of Materialsby Klaus Hackl

    Springer 2010; US$ 119.00

    This symposium focuses on novel applications of methods from the calculus of variations to the solid mechanics of materials. This includes the development of new material models as well as the advancement of the corresponding computational techniques. Specific emphasis is put on the treatment of materials posessing an inherent microstructure and thus... more...

  • Handbook of Power Systems Iby P. M. Pardalos; Steffen Rebennack; Mario V. Pereira; Niko A. Iliadis

    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...
