Operations Research Methodologies

A single source guide to operations research (OR) techniques, this book covers emerging OR methodologies in a clear, concise, and unified manner. Building a bridge between theory and practice, it begins with coverage of fundamental models and methods such as linear, nonlinear, integer, and dynamic programming, networks, simulation, queuing, inventory, stochastic processes, and decision analysis. The book then explores emerging techniques including multiple criteria optimization, meta heuristics, robust optimization, and complexity and large scale networks. Each chapter gives an overview of a particular methodology, illustrates successful applications, and provides references to computer software availability.
