In this text for senior undergraduates and graduate students, Willis and Finney, both affiliated with the Department of Environmental Resources Engineering at Humboldt State University, introduce optimization theory and algorithms that have been successful in resolving water quality and groundwater management problems. Emphasizing the application of optimization, economics, and systems engineering to problems in environmental resources management, the text covers both linear programming and nonlinear optimization. Basic principles of engineering economics are reviewed to provide a framework for decision making. Case studies and problems are included. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
