There is a growing need in major industries such as airline, trucking, financial engineering, etc. to solve very large linear and integer linear optimization problems. Because of the dramatic increase in computing power, it is now possible to solve these problems. Along with the increase in computer power, the mathematical programming community has developed better and more powerful algorithms to solve very large problems. These algorithms are of interest to many researchers in the areas of operations research/management science, computer science, and engineering. In this book, Kipp Martin has systematically provided users with a unified treatment of the algorithms and the implementation of the algorithms that are important in solving large problems.
This book shows how the Bayesian Approach (BA) improves wellÂ known heuristics by randomizing and optimizing their parameters. That is the Bayesian Heuristic Approach (BHA). The ten in-depth examples are designed to teach Operations Research using Internet. Each example is a simple representation of some imporÂ tant family of real-life problems. The accompanying software can be run by remote Internet users. The supporting web-sites include software for Java, C++, and other lanÂ guages. A theoretical setting is described in which one can discuss a Bayesian adaptive choice of heuristics for discrete and global optimization probÂ lems. The techniques are evaluated in the spirit of the average rather than the worst case analysis. In this context, "heuristics" are understood to be an expert opinion defining how to solve a family of problems of disÂ crete or global optimization. The term "Bayesian Heuristic Approach" means that one defines a set of heuristics and fixes some prior distribuÂ tion on the results obtained. By applying BHA one is looking for the heuristic that reduces the average deviation from the global optimum. The theoretical discussions serve as an introduction to examples that are the main part of the book. All the examples are interconnected. DifÂ ferent examples illustrate different points of the general subject. HowÂ ever, one can consider each example separately, too.
Initial training in pure and applied sciences tends to present problem-solving as the process of elaborating explicit closed-form solutions from basic principles, and then using these solutions in numerical applications. This approach is only applicable to very limited classes of problems that are simple enough for such closed-form solutions to exist. Unfortunately, most real-life problems are too complex to be amenable to this type of treatment. Numerical Methods - a Consumer Guide presents methods for dealing with them.
Shifting the paradigm from formal calculus to numerical computation, the text makes it possible for the reader to
Â· discover how to escape the dictatorship of those particular cases that are simple enough to receive a closed-form solution, and thus gain the ability to solve complex, real-life problems;
Â· understand the principles behind recognized algorithms used in state-of-the-art numerical software;
Â· learn the advantages and limitations of these algorithms, to facilitate the choice of which pre-existing bricks to assemble for solving a given problem; and
Â· acquire methods that allow a critical assessment of numerical results.
Numerical Methods - a Consumer Guide will be of interest to engineers and researchers who solve problems numerically with computers or supervise people doing so, and to students of both engineering and applied mathematics.
The ULTIMATE WORD SEARCH book! 150 27x27 (729 letters) puzzles with 48 search words!What Are the Benefits of Word Search Puzzles?Working word search puzzles provides many benefits for our minds. As mentioned previously, we can actually increase our effective IQ. Also, word search puzzles provide our minds with exercise for stimulation and maintenance. In addition, puzzles are good for your mind's cognitive (thinking and memory) development. These puzzles provide great opportunity improve the brain's overall health and longevity; there is less memory loss at advanced age, as well as delayed onset and reduced risk of conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. Scientific studies have found that our brains actually reorganize in response to new challenges; a word search puzzle provides such a challenge. Working word search puzzles improves our thinking skills. Working word search puzzles enhances your ability to solve problems. Word search puzzles improve our focus and attention, because finding solutions requires a lack of distraction and concentration. Working word search puzzles affects the thinking side of your brain, which forces you to solve problems logically - a valuable and important skill. Word puzzles teach critical thinking skills; deduction (deducing answers) is an important critical thinking skill.Working word search puzzles provides enjoyment. Word search puzzles can return adults to a playful state of mind because they provide a sense of adventure.
This is a simple guide to search engine optimization, written in layman's simplicity, geared specifically toward authors and using the best genre keywords for writers to use on blogs and book distributors such as Amazon. It is basic, basic, basic. No mention of HTML or any kind of coding. In fact, if you dabble in website coding or have any previous knowledge of how basic SEO works, keep on scrolling to other optimization guides. I know, I know. Book descriptions are supposed to encourage buying of this particular book. And you should if you are brand spanking new to how search engines and web crawlers work. But if you're looking for more advanced coding, this isn't the guide for that. Not by a long shot. So writers and bloggers new to search engine optimization, this short (25 pages) guide with screen shot examples is ideal. More advanced SEO specialists...move along. From Author Lavender Daye: "Most of the writers who buy this will be like me: desperately in need of the information and how to incorporate it, but with little (or slowly developing) techno savvy."
