Title:Graphs, Dioids and Semirings [electronic resource] : New Models and Algorithms
Author(s): Michel Gondran
Michel Minoux
Date:2008
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The origins of Graph Theory date back to Euler (1736) with the solution of the celebrated 'Koenigsberg Bridges Problem' and to Hamilton with the famous 'Trip around the World' game (1859), stating for the first time a problemwhich, in its most recent version the 'Traveling Salesman Problem' -, is still the subject of active research. Yet, it has been during the last fifty years or sowith the rise of the electronic computersthat Graph theory hasbecome an indispensable discipline in terms of the numbe r and importance of its applications across the Applied Sciences. Graph theory has been especially central to Theoretical and Algorithmic Computer Science, and Automatic Control,Systems Optimization, Economy and Operations Research, Data Analysis in the E ngineering Sciences. Close connections between graphs and algebraic structures have been widely used in the analysis and implementation of efficientalgorithms for many problems, for example: transportation network optimization, telecommunication network o ptimization and planning, optimization in scheduling and production systems, etc. The primary objectives of GRAPHS, DIODS ANDSEMIRINGS: New Models and Algorithms are to emphasize the deep relations existing between the semiring and diod structures with gr aphs and their combinatorial properties, while demonstrating the modeling and problem-solvingcapability and flexibility of these structures. In addition the book provides an extensive overview of the mathematical properties employed by nonclassical algebr aic structures, which either extend usual algebra (i.e., semirings),or correspond to a new branch of algebra (i.e., diods), apart from the classical structures of groups, rings, and fields

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume is a collection of recent key results in supply chain optimisation. It presents new approaches and methods based on operations research, artificial intelligence and computer sciences techniques for design of productionsystems, supply and inventory management, production planning and scheduling, facility location, transportation and logistics, supply flow optimisation via simulation, etc. The content focuses on a wide spectrum of optimisationproblems taking into account supply chain paradi gms, which create a pivotal idea to increase the productivity of modern production systems. The first part of the book presents a set of modelling techniques taking into account theenterprise integration problem, the knowledge management in the SME networ ks, and the human resources in business process engineering. The second part is dedicated to advanced optimisation methods for supply chain design and managementwhich are based on mathematical programming and metaheuristics. The third part of this book de als with some examples of advanced applied decision aid tools directly linked to real industrial problems. Audience This volume is suitablefor industrial engineers, faculty staff and graduate students in industrial engineering, management science, operati ons research, artificial intelligence and computer sciences. This book can be used as a reference for graduate coursesand also for researchers and industrial engineers to capture current trends in this field
