Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Both refining and extending previous publications by the authors, the material in thismonograph has been class-tested in mathematical institutions throughout the world. Covering some of the key areas of optimal control theory(OCT)a rapidly expanding field that has developed to analyze the optimal behavior of a constrained process over timethe authors use new methods to set out a version of OCTs more refinedmaximum principle designed tosolve the problem of constructing optimal control strategies for u ncertain systems where some parameters are unknown. Referred to as a min-max problem, this type of difficulty occurs frequently when dealing with finite uncertainsets. The text begins with a standalone section that reviews classical optimal control theory ,coveringthe principal topics of themaximum principle and dynamic programming and considering the important sub-problems of linearquadratic optimal control and time optimization. Moving on to examine the tent method in detail, the book thenpresents its co re material, which is a more robust maximum principle for both deterministic and stochastic systems.Theresults obtainedhave applicationsin production planning, reinsurance-dividend management, multi-model sliding mode control, and multi-model differential games. Key features and topics include: * A version of the tent method inBanach spaces * How to apply the tent method to a generalization of the Kuhn-Tucker Theorem as well as the Lagrange Principle for infinite-dimensional spaces * A detailed considerat ion of the min-max linear quadratic (LQ) controlproblem * The application of obtained results from dynamic programming derivations to multi-model sliding mode control and multi-model differential games * Two examples, dealing with production planning and reinsurance-dividendmanagement, that illustrate the use of the robust maximum principle in stochastic systems Using powerful new tools in optimal control theory, T

Note:Each chapter in Managing Complexity focuses on analyzing real-world complex systems and transferring knowledge from the complex-systems sciences to applications in business, industry and society. The interdisciplinarycontributions range from markets and production through logistics, traffic control, and critical infrastructures, up to network design, information systems, social conflicts and building consensus. They serve to raise readers'awareness concerning the often counter-intuitive behavior of c omplex systems and to help them integrate insights gained in complexity research into everyday planning, decision making, strategic optimization, and policy. Intended for abroad readership, the contributions have been kept largely non-technical and addres s a general, scientifically literate audience involved in corporate, academic, and public institutions

Title:Foundations and Applications of Mis [electronic resource] : A Model Theory Approach

Date:2006
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Foundations and Applications of MIS presents a unique systems theory approach to management information system (MIS) development. The development is driven by the need to eliminate ambiguity in specification, design andconstruction of the application software. Further, the authors show that the considerable effort being expanded nowadays on validation, verification and testing, as required in current software engineering practices, will be reduced.The approach also reinforces the belief that MIS deve lopment is independent of software development. The work presents an approach that provides a theoretical foundation for MIS development from the systems theoretic viewpoint alongwith practical applications ranging from a transaction processing system to a solver system. Both formal systems theory and automatic system generation based on the authors' newly extended Prolog offer a significant increase in theefficiency of specification, design and production of the application software, as well as an increa se in the functional reliability of the software produced. The book assumes a working knowledge of elementary set theory, logic, andfamiliarity with some systems concepts, such as the automaton model. Senior undergraduates and graduate students, researche rs in management information systems, systems engineers and systems scientists will benefit from this book

Date:2006
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This textbook provides a comprehensive modeling, reformulation and optimization approach for solving production planning and related supply chain planning problems, covering topics from a basic introduction to planning systems,mixed integer programmi ng (MIP) models and algorithms through the advanced description of mathematical results in polyhedral combinatorics required to solve these problems. This book addresses the solution of real life or industrialproduction planning problems (involving comple x production structures with multiple production stages) using a MIP modeling and reformulation approach. It is based on close to twenty years of research in which the authors have played asignificant role. One of the goals of this book is to allow non-ex pert readers, students in business, engineering, applied mathematics and computer science to solve such problems using standard modeling tools and MIP software. Toachieve this the book provides a unique collection of reformulation results, integrating the m into a comprehensive modeling and reformulation approach, as well as an easy to use problem-solving library. Moreover this approach isdemonstrated through a series of real life case studies, exercises and detailed illustrations. Graduate students and re searchers in operations research, management, science and applied mathematics wishing to gain a deeper understandingof the formulations and mathematics underlying this approach will find this book useful because of its detailed treatment of the polyhedral structure of the basic lot-sizing problems and simple mixed integer sets that arise in thedecomposition of more complicated problems. This book will allow the reader to improve formulations of non-standard MIP models and produce state-of-the-art models a nd algorithms

Title:Tutorials on Emerging Methodologies and Applications in Operations Research [electronic resource] : Presented at Informs 2004, Denver, CO

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Operations Research emerged as a quantitative approach to problem-solving in World War II. Its founders, who were physicists, mathematicians, and engineers, quickly found peace-time uses for this new field. Moreover, we can saythat Operations Researc h (OR) was born in the same incubator as computer science, and through the years, it has spawned many new disciplines, including systems engineering, health care management, and transportation science.Fundamentally, Operations Research crosses discipline domains to seek solutions on a range of problems and benefits diverse disciplines from finance to bioengineering. Many disciplines routinely use OR methods. Many scientificresearchers, engineers, and others will find the methodological presentations in th is book useful and helpful in their problem-solving efforts. ORs strengths are modeling, analysis, and algorithm design. It provides a quantitativefoundation for a broad spectrum of problems, from economics to medicine, from environmental control to sport s, from e-commerce to computational geometry. The primary purpose of TUTORIALS ON EMERGING METHODOLOGIES AND APPLICATIONS INOPERATIONS RESEARCH is to provide a reference for practitioners and academics who seek a clear, concise presentation of developing methodologies, hence providing themselves with the capability to apply these methods to new problems.The field of Operations Research is always changing. Its changes are driven by the technology it uses and that it extends, and the applications that it af fects. Relevant changes in the field have a permanent effect on the conduct of ORand are vital to anyone who wants to be current in the field. Each chapter presents a new developing methodology in Operations Research. Each chapter examines each topic with clarity and depth, and organizes the examination around thefollowing questions: (1) What the developing methodology basically is about? (2) Why is it important? and (3) Where can I learn more?
