Note:Martin Grtschel is one of the most influential mathematicians of our time. He has received numerous honors and holds a number of key positions in the international mathematical community. He celebrated his 65th birthday onSeptember 10, 2013. Martin G rtschels doctoral descendant tree 19832012, i.e., the first 30 years, features 39 children, 74 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren, a total of 139 doctoraldescendants. This book starts with a personal tribute to Martin G rtschel by the editors (Part I), a contribution by his very special predecessor Manfred Padberg on Facets and Rank of Integer Polyhedra (Part II), and thedoctoral descendant tree 19832012 (Part III). The core of this book (Part IV) contains 16 contributio ns, each of which is coauthored by at least one doctoral descendant. The sequence of the articles starts with contributions tothe theory of mathematical optimization, including polyhedral combinatorics, extended formulations, mixed-integer convex optimiza tion, superclasses of perfect graphs, efficient algorithms for subtree-telecenters, junctions in acyclicgraphs, and preemptive restricted strip covering, as well as efficient approximation of non-preemptive restricted strip covering. Combinations of new t heoretical insights with algorithms and experiments deal with network designproblems, combinatorial optimization problems with submodular objective functions, and more general mixed-integer nonlinear optimization problems. Applications include VLSI layout design, systems biology, wireless network design,mean-risk optimization, and gas network optimization. Computational studies include a semidefinite branch and cut approach for the max k-cut problem, mixed-integer nonlinear optimal control, and mixed-inte ger linear optimization forscheduling and routing of fly-in safari planes. The two closing articles are devoted to computational advances in general mixed-integer li

Title:Constructal Law and the Unifying Principle of Design [electronic resource]

Note:Design happens everywhere, whether in animate objects (e.g., dendritic lung structures, bacterial colonies, and corals), inanimate patterns (river basins, beach slope, and dendritic crystals), social dynamics (pedestrian trafficflows), or engineered systems (heat dissipation in electronic circuitry). This design in nature often takes on remarkably similar patterns, which can be explained under one unifying Constructal Law. This book explores theunifying power of the Constructal Law and its applicatio ns in all domains of design generation and evolution, ranging from biology and geophysics to globalization, energy, sustainability, and security. The Constructal Law accountsfor the universal tendency of flow systems to morph into evolving configurations that provide greater and easier access over time. The Constructal Law resolves the many and contradictory ad hoc statements of optimality, enddesign, and destiny in nature, such as minimum and maximum entropy production and minimum and maximum flow resist ance, and also explains the designs that are observed and copied in biomimetics. Constructal Law and the UnifyingPrinciple of Design covers the fundamentals of Constructal Theory and Design, as well as presenting a variety of state-of-the-art applications . Experts from the biological, physical and social sciences demonstrate the unification ofall design phenomena in nature, and apply this knowledge to novel designs in modern engineering, such as vascularization for self-healing and self-cooling materials for aircraft, and tree fins and cavities for heat transferenhancement. Captures a world-wide movement toward design as science Defines the place of the Constructal Law in physics and thermodynamics Features an interdisciplinaryapproach that spans phys ics, biology, engineering and the social sciences Demonstrates that a single law of physics governs all the pheno

Title:Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Emmanuel Paradis
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The increasing availability of molecular and genetic databases coupled with the growing power of computers gives biologists opportunities to address new issues, such as the patterns of molecular evolution, and re-assess old ones,such as the role of a daptation in species diversification. In the second edition, the book continues to integrate a wide variety of data analysis methods into a single and flexible interface: the R language. This open source languageis available for a wide range of computer s ystems and has been adopted as a computational environment by many authors of statistical software. Adopting R as a main tool for phylogenetic analyses will ease the workflow in biologists'data analyses, ensure greater scientific repeatability, and enhanc e the exchange of ideas and methodological developments. The second edition is completely updated, covering the full gamut of R packages for this area that have beenintroduced to the market since its previous publication five years ago. There is also a ne w chapter on the simulation of evolutionary data. Graduate students and researchers in evolutionary biology can use this book as areference for data analyses, whereas researchers in bioinformatics interested in evolutionary analyses will learn how to impl ement these methods in R. The book starts with a presentation of different R packages and gives a shortintroduction to R for phylogeneticists unfamiliar with this language. The basic phylogenetic topics are covered: manipulation of phylogenetic data, phyl ogeny estimation, tree drawing, phylogenetic comparative methods, and estimation ofancestral characters. The chapter on tree drawing uses R's powerful graphical environment. A section deals with the analysis of diversification with phylogenies, one of the author's favorite research topics. The last chapter is devotedto the development of phylogenetic methods with R and interfaces with other languages (C and C++). Some exercises conclude these chap

Note:Recent advances in both the theory and implementation of computational algebraic geometry have led to new, striking applications to a variety of fields of research. The articles in this volume highlight a range of theseapplications and provide introd uctory material for topics covered in the IMA workshops on Optimization and Control and Applications in Biology, Dynamics, and Statistics held during the IMA year on Applications of AlgebraicGeometry. The articles related to optimization and control focus on burgeoning use of semidefinite programming and moment matrix techniques in computational real algebraic geometry. The new direction towards a systematic study ofnon-commutative real algebraic geometry is well represented in the volume. Other articles provide an overview of the way computational algebra is useful for analysis of contingency tables, reconstruction of phylogenetic trees, and insystems biology. The contributions collected in this volume are accessible to non-experts, self-contained and in formative they quickly move towards cutting edge research in these areas, and provide a wealth of open problems for futureresearch

Title:Shortest Connectivity [electronic resource] : An Introduction with Applications in Phylogeny
Author(s): Dietmar Cieslik
Date:2005
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The problem of Shortest Connectivity has a long and convoluted history: given a finite set of points in a metric space, search for a network that connects these points with the shortest possible length. This shortest networkmust be a tree and may con tain vertices different from the points which are to be connected. Over the years more and more real-life problems are given, which use this problem or one of its relatives as an application, as a subproblemor a model. This volume is an introduction to th e theory of Shortest Connectivity, as the core of the so-called Geometric Network Design Problems, where the general problem can be stated as follows: given a configuration ofvertices and/or edges, find a network which contains these objects, satisfies so me predetermined requirements, and which minimizes a given objective function that depends on several distance measures. A new application of shortestconnectivity is also discussed, namely to create trees which reflect the evolutionary history of living e ntities. The aim in this graduate level text is to outline the key mathematical concepts that underpin these importantquestions in applied mathematics. These concepts involve discrete mathematics (particularly graph theory), optimization, computer science , and several ideas in biology
