Most widely held works by Horst A Eiselt
Operations research : a model-based approach by Horst A Eiselt( )

32 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book covers the standard models and techniques used in decision making in organizations. The main emphasis of the book is on modeling business-related scenarios and the generation of decision alternatives. Fully solved examples from many areas are used to illustrate the main concepts without getting bogged down in technical details. The book presents an approach to operations research that is heavily based on modeling and makes extensive use of sensitivity analyses. It is a result of many years of combined teaching experience of the authors"--Back cover
Linear programming and its applications by Horst A Eiselt( )

20 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a unified treatment of linear programming. Without sacrificing mathematical rigor, the main emphasis of the book is on models and applications. The most important classes of problems are surveyed and presented by means of mathematical formulations, followed by solution methods and a discussion of a variety of "what-if" scenarios. Non-simplex based solution methods and newer developments such as interior point methods are covered along with a variety of approaches that incorporate multiple objectives in the model."--Jacket
Foundations of location analysis by Horst A Eiselt( )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Location analysis has matured from an area of theoretical inquiry that was designed to explain observed phenomena to a vibrant field which can be and has been used to locate items as diverse as landfills, fast food outlets, gas stations, as well as politicians and products in issue and feature spaces. Modern location science is dealt with by a diverse group of researchers and practitioners in geography, economics, operations research, industrial engineering, and computer science. Given the tremendous advances location science has seen from its humble beginnings, it is time to look back. The co
Operations research handbook : standard algorithms and methods with examples by Horst A Eiselt( Book )

19 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applications of location analysis( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, companion to Foundations of Location Analysis (Springer, 2011), highlights some of the applications of location analysis within the spheres of businesses, those that deal with public services, and applications that deal with law enforcement and first responders. While the Foundations book reviewed the theory and first contributions, this book describes how different location techniques have been used to solve real problems. Since many real problems comprise multiple objectives, in this book there is more presence of tools from multicriteria decision making and multiple-objective optimization. The section on business applications looks at such problems as locating bank branches, the potential location of a logistics park, sustainable forest management, and layout problems in a hospital, a much more difficult type of problem than mere location problems. The section on public services presents chapters on the design of habitats for wildlife, control of forest fires, the location of intelligent sensors along highways for timely emergency response, locating breast cancer screening centers, an economic analysis for the locations of post offices, and school location. The final section of the book includes chapters on the well-known problem of locating fire stations, a model for the location of sensors for travel time information, the problem of police districting, locations of jails, location of Coast Guard vessels, and, finally, a survey of military applications of location analysis throughout different periods of recent history
Advances in optimization and control : proceedings of the Conference "Optimization Days 86", held at Montreal, Canada, April 30-May 2, 1986 by Horst A Eiselt( Book )

21 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This conference volume is a collection of over thirty refereed contributions in the areas of optimization and control. The volume is organized into the following sections: Mathematics of Operations Research and Global Optimization Linear and Combinatorial Programming Tours, Locations and Scheduling Dynamic Programming and Game Theory Control Theory Economic Models. There is a balance between papers dealing with theoretical aspects of the field and those discussing the respective areas of application
Integer programming and network models by Horst A Eiselt( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to provide readers with an introduction to the very active field of integer programming and network models. The idea is to cover the main parts of the field without being too detailed or too technical. As a matter of fact, we found it somewhat surprising that most--especially newer--books are strongly algorithmically oriented. In contrast, the main emphasis of this book is on models rather than methods. This focus expresses our view that methods are tools to solve actual problems and not ends in themselves. As such, graduate (and with some omissions, undergraduate) students may find this book helpful in their studies as will practitioners who would like to get acquainted with a field or use this text as a refresher. This premise has resulted in a coverage that omits material that is standard fare in other books, whereas it covers topics that are only infrequently found elsewhere. There are some, yet relatively few, prerequisites for the reader. Most material that is required for the understanding of more than one chapter is presented in one of the four chapters of the introductory part, which reviews the main results in linear programming, the analysis of algorithms, graphs and networks, and dynamic programming, respectively. Readers who are familiar with the issues involved can safely skip that part. The three main parts of the book rely on intuitive reasoning and examples, whenever practical, instead of theorems and proofs
Decision analysis, location models, and scheduling problems by Horst A Eiselt( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book presents a unified treatment of decision analysis, location theory and scheduling, with topics ranging from multicriteria decision-making, multiattribute utility theory, classical decision analysis and game theory, to location and layout planning, and to project and machine scheduling. While the emphasis of the book is on models and applications, the most important methods and algorithms, exact as well as heuristic, are described in detail and illustrated by numerical examples. The formulations and the discussion of a large variety of models provide insight into their structures, allowing the user to better evaluate the solutions to the problems

An Optimal algorithm for weighted minimax flow centers on trees by Horst A Eiselt( Book )

12 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper considers the problem of locating a facility so that the flow pattern which results from shipping all supplies to the facility is such that it minimizes the largest weighted flow on any individual edge. Some properties of such a facility are derived and a linear-time algorithm for their determination is given
Arc routing problems by Horst A Eiselt( Book )

12 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arc routing problems arise in several areas of distribution management and have long been the object of study of mathematicians and operations researchers. In this two-part survey, the Chinese Postman Problem (CPP) is first considered. The main algorithmic results for the CPP are reviewed, including the undirected CPP, the directed CPP, the windy postman problem, the mixed CPP, and the hierarchical CPP
