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

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 1,490 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

Cooperative control and optimization by Robert Murphey( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A co-operative system is defined to be multiple dynamic entities that share information or tasks to accomplish a common, though perhaps not singular, objective. Examples of co-operative control systems might include: robots operating within a manufacturing cell, unmanned aircraft in search and rescue operations or military surveillance and attack missions, arrays of micro satellites that form a distributed large aperture radar, employees operating within an organization, and software agents.; The term entity is most often associated with vehicles capable of physical motion such as robots, automobiles, ships, and aircraft, but the definition extends to any entity concept that exhibits a time dependent behaviour. Critical to co-operation is communication, which may be accomplished through active message passing or by passive observation. It is assumed that co-operation is being used to accomplish some common purpose that is greater than the purpose of each individual, but we recognize that the individual may have other objectives as well, perhaps due to being a member of other caucuses. This implies that co-operation may assume hierarchical forms as well.; The decision-making processes (control) are typically thought to be distributed or decentralized to some degree. For if not, a co-operative system could always be modeled as a single entity. The level of co-operation may be indicated by the amount of information exchanged between entities. Co-operative systems may involve task sharing and can consist of heterogeneous entities. Mixed initiative systems are particularly interesting heterogeneous systems since they are composed of humans and machines. Finally, one is often interested in how co-operative systems perform under noisy or adversary conditions. In December 2000, the Air Force Research Laboratory and the University of Florida successfully hosted the first Workshop on Cooperative Control and Optimization in Gainesville, Florida. This book contains selected refereed papers summarizing the participants' research in control and optimization of co-operative systems
Encyclopedia of optimization by Christodoulos A Floudas( )

53 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 1,118 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"

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

20 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 860 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

Handbook of optimization in telecommunications by Mauricio G. C Resende( )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 570 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

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

22 editions published in 1987 in 3 languages and held by 542 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)
Robust optimization-directed design by Andrew Kurdila( )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 524 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.

Supply chain management : models, applications, and research directions by Joseph Geunes( )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 518 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
