Book Description

In writing this handbook the authors had in mind not only the stu-dents of economics, social sciences, and mathematic but also the professionals in all fields engaging in optimization problems and the control of projects.
The most important and most often utilized algorithms for the solution of these problems have been collected and described in a uni-form and hopefully understandable manner.

With this goal set, each section was divided as follows:

a) Hypotheses: Here the problem is formulated and the prerequi sites are explained.
b) Principle: Briefly the general concept is presented.
c) Description: In this section each step of the algorithm or method is explained in a standard format.
d) Example: For each paragraph an example is completely solved. An effort has been made in selecting the examples to find those which illustrate even the special properties of certain algorithms and methods.
The reader should already be familiar with the basic concepts of differentiation, integration, and statistics. A summary of the topics in Linear Algebra that are necessary is provided at the beginning’ of the book.
Because this book was conceived as a desk reference, the corresponding theory and necessary proofs which are found in the myriad of textbooks in Operations Research have been omitted. For details concerning the material in each chapter, beyond the outright applications, it is essential that the reader becomes familiar with the technical literature.
