Discrete Geometry and Optimization (Fields Institute Communications)

Buy

​Optimization has long been a source of both inspiration and applications for geometers, and conversely, discrete and convex geometry have provided the foundations for many optimization techniques, leading to a rich interplay between these subjects. The purpose of the Workshop on Discrete Geometry, the Conference on Discrete Geometry and Optimization, and the Workshop on Optimization, held in September 2011 at the Fields Institute, Toronto, was to further stimulate the interaction between geometers and optimizers. This volume reflects the interplay between these areas.

The inspiring Fejes Tóth Lecture Series, delivered by Thomas Hales of the University of Pittsburgh, exemplified this approach. While these fields have recently witnessed a lot of activity and successes, many questions remain open. For example, Fields medalist Stephen Smale stated that the question of the existence of a strongly polynomial time algorithm for linear optimization is one of the most important unsolved problems at the beginning of the 21st century. The broad range of topics covered in this volume demonstrates the many recent and fruitful connections between different approaches, and features novel results and state-of-the-art surveys as well as open problems.

Nonlinear Digital Filtering with Python: An Introduction
Nonlinear Digital Filtering with Python: An Introduction

Nonlinear Digital Filtering with Python: An Introduction discusses important structural filter classes including the median filter and a number of its extensions (e.g., weighted and recursive median filters), and Volterra filters based on polynomial nonlinearities. Adopting both structural and behavioral approaches in characterizing...

Nonnegative Matrix and Tensor Factorizations: Applications to Exploratory Multi-way Data Analysis and Blind Source Separation
Nonnegative Matrix and Tensor Factorizations: Applications to Exploratory Multi-way Data Analysis and Blind Source Separation
This book provides a broad survey of models and efficient algorithms for Nonnegative Matrix Factorization (NMF). This includes NMF’s various extensions and modifications, especially Nonnegative Tensor Factorizations (NTF) and Nonnegative Tucker Decompositions (NTD). NMF/NTF and their extensions are increasingly used as tools in signal and...
Flexibility and Robustness in Scheduling
Flexibility and Robustness in Scheduling

Scheduling is a broad research area and scheduling problems arise from several application domains (production systems, logistic, computer science, etc.). Solving scheduling problems requires tools of combinatorial optimization, exact or approximated algorithms. Flexibility is at the frontier between predictive deterministic approaches and...


Digital Typography Using LaTeX
Digital Typography Using LaTeX
This book explores a great number of concepts, methods, technologies, and tools-in oneword resources-that apply to various domains of typeselling. These resources have been developed and are used by the members of a very special community of people, which is also a community of very special people: the TEX community. To understand the motivation...
Combinatorial Optimization: 3-Volume Set (ISTE)
Combinatorial Optimization: 3-Volume Set (ISTE)

Combinatorial optimization is a multidisciplinary scientific area, lying in the interface of three major domains: mathematics, theoretical computer science and management.

The three volumes of the Combinatorial Optimization set aim to cover a wide range of topics in this area. These topics also deal with fundamental notions and...
