Constrained global optimization : algorithms and applications by P. M Pardalos( Book )

22 editions published in 1987 in 3 languages and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Global optimization is concerned with the characterization and computation of global minima or maxima of nonlinear functions. Such problems are widespread in mathematical modeling of real world systems for a very broad range of applications. The applications include economies of scale, fixed charges, allocation and location problems, quadratic assignment and a number of other combinatorial optimization problems. More recently it has been shown that certain aspects of VLSI chip design and database problems can be formulated as constrained global optimization problems with a quadratic objective function. Although standard nonlinear programming algorithms will usually obtain a local minimum to the problem, such a local minimum will only be global when certain conditions are satisfied (such as f and K being convex)

Encyclopedia of optimization by Christodoulos A Floudas( Book )

40 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of the Encyclopedia of Optimization is to introduce the reader to a complete set of topics that show the spectrum of research, the richness of ideas, and the breadth of applications that has come from this field. In 2000, the first edition was widely acclaimed and received high praise. J.B. Rosen crowned it an indispensable resource and Dingzhu Du lauded it as the standard most important reference in this very dynamic research field. Top authors such as Herbert Hauptman (winner of the Nobel Prize) and Leonid Khachiyan (the Ellipsoid theorist) contributed and the second edition keeps these seminal entries.The second edition builds on the success of the former edition with more than 150 completely new entries, designed to ensure that the reference addresses recent areas where optimization theories and techniques have advanced. Particularly heavy attention resulted in health science and transportation, with entries such as Algorithms for Genomics, Optimization and Radiotherapy Treatment Design, and Crew Scheduling"
Handbook of optimization in telecommunications by Mauricio G. C Resende( Book )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I highly recommend The Handbook of Optimization in Telecommunications as an invaluable resource for anyone interested in understanding the impact of optimization on the most import problems facing the telecommunications industry today. The handbook is unprecedented in the breadth and depth of its coverage, illustrating that telecommunications offers a vast array of interesting and important optimization problems probably exceeding the traditional areas of transportation networks, engineering, economics and military operations."--Clyde Monma, Retired Chief Scientist, Applied Research Area, Telcordia Technologies Telecommunications has had a major impact in all aspects of life in the last century. There is little doubt that the transformation from the industrial age to the information age has been fundamentally influenced by advances in telecommunications. Optimization problems are abundant in the telecommunications industry. The successful solution of these problems has played an important role in the development of telecommunications and its widespread use. Optimization problems arise in the design of telecommunication systems and in their operation. The Handbook of Optimization in Telecommunications brings together experts from around the world who use optimization to solve problems that arise in telecommunications. The editors made an effort to cover recent optimization developments that are frequently applied to telecommunications. The spectrum of topics covered includes planning and design of telecommunication networks, routing, network protection, grooming, restoration, wireless communications, network location and assignment problems, Internet protocol, World Wide Web, and stochastic issues in telecommunications. The editors' objective is to provide a reference tool for the increasing number of scientists and engineers in telecommunications who depend upon optimization in some way. Each chapter in the handbook is of an expository nature, but of scholarly treatment, and includes a brief overview of the state-of-the-art thinking relative to the topic, as well as pointers to the key references in the field. Specialists as well as nonspecialists should find this handbook stimulating and helpful. Audience This handbook will be useful for students, researchers, and practitioners in engineering, computer science, statistics, operations research, and mathematics
Supply chain management : models, applications, and research directions by Joseph Geunes( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work brings together some of the most up to date research in the application of operations research and mathematical modeling te- niques to problems arising in supply chain management and e-Commerce. While research in the broad area of supply chain management enc- passes a wide range of topics and methodologies, we believe this book provides a good snapshot of current quantitative modeling approaches, issues, and trends within the field. Each chapter is a self-contained study of a timely and relevant research problem in supply chain mana- ment. The individual works place a heavy emphasis on the application of modeling techniques to real world management problems. In many instances, the actual results from applying these techniques in practice are highlighted. In addition, each chapter provides important mana- rial insights that apply to general supply chain management practice. The book is divided into three parts. The first part contains ch- ters that address the new and rapidly growing role of the internet and e-Commerce in supply chain management. Topics include e-Business applications and potentials; customer service issues in the presence of multiple sales channels, varying from purely Internet-based to traditional physical outlets; and risk management issues in e-Business in B2B m- kets

Fuzzy sets in management, economics, and marketing by Constantin Zopounidis( Book )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The main purpose of this book is to present the most recent advances in the development of innovative techniques for managing the uncertainty that prevails in the global economic and management environments. These techniques originate mainly from fuzzy sets theory. However, the book also explores the integration of fuzzy sets with other decision support and modelling disciplines, such as multicriteria decision aid, neural networks, genetic algorithms, machine learning, chaos theory, and so on. The presentation of the advances in these fields and their real world applications adds a new perspective to the broad fields of management science and economics

Robust optimization-directed design by Andrew Kurdila( Book )

12 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robust design"that is, managing design uncertainties such as model uncertainty or parametric uncertainty"is the often unpleasant issue crucial in much multidisciplinary optimal design work. Recently, there has been enormous practical interest in strategies for applying optimization tools to the development of robust solutions and designs in several areas, including aerodynamics, the integration of sensing (e.g., laser radars, vision-based systems, and millimeter-wave radars) and control, cooperative control with poorly modeled uncertainty, cascading failures in military and civilian applications, multi-mode seekers/sensor fusion, and data association problems and tracking systems. The contributions to this book explore these different strategies. The expression "optimization-directed" in this book's title is meant to suggest that the focus is not agonizing over whether optimization strategies identify a true global optimum, but rather whether these strategies make significant design improvements.

Equilibrium problems : nonsmooth optimization and variational inequality models by F Giannessi( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of the book is to cover the three fundamental aspects of research in equilibrium problems: the statement problem and its formulation using mainly variational methods, its theoretical solution by means of classical and new variational tools, the calculus of solutions and applications in concrete cases. The book shows how many equilibrium problems follow a general law (the so-called user equilibrium condition). Such law allows us to express the problem in terms of variational inequalities. Variational inequalities provide a powerful methodology, by which existence and calculation of the solution can be obtained

Theory and algorithms for cooperative systems by Don A Grundel( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past several years, cooperative control and optimization have increasingly played a larger and more important role in many aspects of military sciences, biology, communications, robotics, and decision making. At the same time, cooperative systems are notoriously difficult to model, analyze, and solve - while intuitively understood, they are not axiomatically defined in any commonly accepted manner. The works in this volume provide outstanding insights into this very complex area of research. They are the result of invited papers and selected presentations at the Fourth Annual Conferen
