A First Course in Combinatorial Optimization is a text for a one-semester introductory graduate-level course for students of operations research, mathematics, and computer science. It is a self-contained treatment of the subject, requiring only some mathematical maturity. Topics include: linear and integer programming, polytopes, matroids and matroid optimization, shortest paths, and network flows. Central to the exposition is the polyhedral viewpoint, which is the key principle underlying the successful integer-programming approach to combinatorial-optimization problems. Another key unifying topic is matroids. The author does not dwell on data structures and implementation details, preferring to focus on the key mathematical ideas that lead to useful models and algorithms. Problems and exercises are included throughout as well as references for further study.

This book provides a critical update and synthesis of contemporary evidence for schizophrenia as a brain disease of early, neurodevelopmental origin; it does this through contributions from leading authorities in this field who work at multiple levels of biological and epidemiological enquiry. The work seeks both to integrate this evolving body of evidence and to examine the strengths and weaknesses of the neurodevelopmental model.
Wireless Networks and Security Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Advanced Computing, Networking and Informatics (ICACNI-2014)
Author: Malay Kumar Kundu,Durga Prasad Mohapatra,Amit Konar,Aruna Chakraborty
Advanced Computing, Networking and Informatics are three distinct and mutually exclusive disciplines of knowledge with no apparent sharing/overlap among them. However, their convergence is observed in many real world applications, including cyber-security, internet banking, healthcare, sensor networks, cognitive radio, pervasive computing amidst many others. This two-volume proceedings explore the combined use of Advanced Computing and Informatics in the next generation wireless networks and security, signal and image processing, ontology and human-computer interfaces (HCI). The two volumes together include 148 scholarly papers, which have been accepted for presentation from over 640 submissions in the second International Conference on Advanced Computing, Networking and Informatics, 2014, held in Kolkata, India during June 24-26, 2014. The first volume includes innovative computing techniques and relevant research results in informatics with selective applications in pattern recognition, signal/image processing and HCI. The second volume on the other hand demonstrates the possible scope of the computing techniques and informatics in wireless communications, networking and security.

This book is a reference for librarians, mathematicians, and statisticians involved in college and research level mathematics and statistics in the 21st century. We are in a time of transition in scholarly communications in mathematics, practices which have changed little for a hundred years are giving way to new modes of accessing information. Where journals, books, indexes and catalogs were once the physical representation of a good mathematics library, shelves have given way to computers, and users are often accessing information from remote places. Part I is a historical survey of the past 15 years tracking this huge transition in scholarly communications in mathematics. Part II of the book is the bibliography of resources recommended to support the disciplines of mathematics and statistics. These are grouped by type of material. Publication dates range from the 1800's onwards. Hundreds of electronic resources-some online, both dynamic and static, some in fixed media, are listed among the paper resources. Amazingly a majority of listed electronic resources are free.

The topics discussed include particle swarm optimization, the artificial bee colony algorithm, Spider Monkey optimization algorithm, genetic algorithms, constrained multi-objective evolutionary algorithms, genetic programming, and evolutionary fuzzy systems. A friendly and informative treatment of the topics makes this book an ideal reference for beginners and those with experience alike.
Volume 1: Separation of Sets and Optimality Conditions
Author: Franco Giannessi
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
Over the last twenty years, Professor Franco Giannessi, a highly respected researcher, has been working on an approach to optimization theory based on image space analysis. His theory has been elaborated by many other researchers in a wealth of papers. Constrained Optimization and Image Space Analysis unites his results and presents optimization theory and variational inequalities in their light. It presents a new approach to the theory of constrained extremum problems, including Mathematical Programming, Calculus of Variations and Optimal Control Problems. Such an approach unifies the several branches: Optimality Conditions, Duality, Penalizations, Vector Problems, Variational Inequalities and Complementarity Problems. The applications benefit from a unified theory.

Quality measurement, control, and improvement in combinatorial chemistry Combinatorial chemistry has developed rapidly in the past decade, with great advances made by scientists working on analysis and purification of a large number of compounds and the analysis of polymer-bound compounds. However, formidable challenges lie ahead of today's researcher. For example, high-throughput analysis and purification technologies must be further developed to ensure combinatorial libraries are "purifiable," and "drugable." To this end, Analysis and Purification Methods in Combinatorial Chemistry describes various analytical techniques and systems for the development, validation, quality control, purification, and physicochemical testing of combinatorial libraries. A new volume in Wiley's Chemical Analysis series, this text has four parts covering: * Various approaches to monitoring reactions on solid support and optimizing reactions for library synthesis * High-throughput analytical methods used to analyze the quality of libraries * High-throughput purification techniques * Analytical methods applied in post-synthesis and post-purification stages Drawing from the contributions of respected experts in combinatorial chemistry, this comprehensive book provides coverage of applications of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR), micellar electrokinetic chromatography (MEKC) technologies, as well as other analytical techniques. This eminently useful volume is an essential addition to the library of students and researchers studying or working in analytical chemistry, combinatorial chemistry, medicinal chemistry, organic chemistry, biotechnology, biochemistry, or biophysics.
