Applications Of Combinatorial Optimization from the Author: Vangelis Th. Paschos. Combinatorial optimization is a multidisciplinary scientific area, lying in the interface of three major scientific domains: mathematics, theoretical computer science and management. The three volumes of the Combinatorial Optimization series aim to cover a wide range of topics in this area. These topics also deal with fundamental notions and approaches as with several classical applications of combinatorial optimization. Concepts of Combinatorial Optimization, is divided into three parts: - On the complexity of combinatorial optimization problems, presenting basics about worst-case and randomized complexity; - Classical solution methods, presenting the two most-known methods for solving hard combinatorial optimization problems, that are Branch-and-Bound and Dynamic Programming; - Elements from mathematical programming, presenting fundamentals from mathematical programming based methods that are in the heart of Operations Research since the origins of this field.

Industrial Applications Of Combinatorial Optimization from the Author: Gang Yu. Industries rely more and more on advanced technology. Accelerated computer evolution makes large-scale computation practical. Many enterprises are be ginning to benefit from more efficient allocation of resources and more effective planning, scheduling, manufacturing, and distribution by adopting state-of-the art decision support systems. Academics increasingly emphasize application driven research. All these forces have moved optimization from a pure class room and textbook terminology to an accepted tool in today's business world. This book chronicles and describes applications of combinatorial optimization in industry. A wide range of applications is included: manpower planning • production planning • job sequencing and scheduling • manufacturing layout design • facility planning • vehicle scheduling and routing • retail seasonal planning • I! space shuttle scheduling, and telecommunication network design . • The applications covered in this book comprise a representative set of industry sectors including electronics, airlines, manufacturing, tobacco, retail, telecom munication, defense, and livestock. These examples should encourage opera tions researchers and applied mathematicians by pointing out how the impor tance and practicality of optimization is starting to be realized by the manage ment of various organizations and how some pioneering developments in this field are beginning to bear fruit.
