Geometric algorithms and combinatorial optimization by
Martin Grötschel(
Book
)
37 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in English and German and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book develops geometric techniques for proving the polynomial time solvability of problems in convexity theory, geometry, and, in particular, combinatorial optimization. It offers a unifying approach which is based on two fundamental geometric algorithms: the ellipsoid method for finding a point in a convex set and the basis reduction method for point lattices. This book is a continuation and extension of previous research of the authors for which they received the Fulkerson prize, awarded by the Mathematical Programming Society and the American Mathematical Society. The first edition of this book was received enthusiastically by the community of discrete mathematicians, combinatorial optimizers, operations researchers, and computer scientists. To quote just from a few reviews: "The book is written in a very grasping way, legible both for people who are interested in the most important results and for people who are interested in technical details and proofs." #manuscripta geodaetica#1

Online optimization of large scale systems by
Martin Grötschel(
Book
)
13 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Whether costs are to be reduced, profits to be maximized, or scarce resources to be used wisely, optimization methods are available to guide decision making. In online optimization the main issue is: incomplete data; and the scientific challenge: How well can an online algorithm perform? Can one guarantee solution quality, even without knowing all data in advance? In realtime optimization there is an additional requirement, decisions have to be computed very fast, fast in relation to the time frame of the instance we consider. Online and realtime optimization problems occur in all branches of optimization: linear, nonlinear, integer, stochastic. These areas have developed their own techniques but they are addressing the same issues: quality, stability, and robustness of the solutions. To fertilize this emerging topic of optimization theory and to foster cooperation between the different branches of optimization, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) has supported a Priority Programme "Online Optimization of Large Systems". This volume contains "background articles" and "research articles". Background articles are intended to give an overview over the basic theory in the respective area and are accessible to graduate math students. Research articles summarize the progress in a project achieved in the Priority Programme

The sharpest cut : the impact of Manfred Padberg and his work by
Martin Grötschel(
Book
)
12 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This title is written in honor of Manfred Padberg, who has made fundamental contributions to both the theoretical and computational sides of integer programming and combinatorial optimization. This outstanding collection presents recent results in these areas that are closely connected to Padberg's research. His deep commitment to the geometrical approach to combinatorial optimization can be felt throughout this volume; his search for increasingly better and computationally efficient cutting planes gave rise to its title. The peerreviewed papers contained here are based on invited lectures given at a workshop held in October 2001 to celebrate Padberg's 60th birthday. Grouped by topic (packing, stable sets, and perfect graphs; polyhedral combinatorics; general polytopes; semidefinite programming; computation), many of the papers set out to solve challenges set forth in Padberg's work. The book also shows how Padberg's ideas on cutting planes have influenced modern commercial optimization software

Building bridges : between mathematics and computer science by
Martin Grötschel(
Book
)
18 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Discrete mathematics and theoretical computer science are closely linked research areas with strong impacts on applications and various other scientific disciplines. Both fields deeply cross fertilize each other. One of the persons who particularly contributed to building bridges between these and many other areas is Laszlo Lovasz, a scholar whose outstanding scientific work has defined and shaped many research directions in the last 40 years. A number of friends and colleagues, all top authorities in their fields of expertise and all invited plenary speakers at one of two conferences in August 2008 in Hungary, both celebrating Lovasz's 60th birthday, have contributed their latest research papers to this volume. This collection of articles offers an excellent view on the state of combinatorics and related topics and will be of interest for experienced specialists as well as young researchers."book jacket

Representing polyhedra by few polynomial inequalities by
Hartwig Bosse(
)
5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Our main result is that every ndimensional polytope can be described by at most 2n  1 polynomial inequalities and, moreover, these polynomials can explicitly be constructed. For an ndimensional pointed polyhedral cone we prove the bound 2n  2 and for arbitrary polyhedra we get a constructible representation by 2n polynomial inequalities

Matheonmathematics for key technologies(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mathematics: intellectual endeavor, production factor, key technology, key to key technologies? Mathematics is all of these! The last three of its facets have been the focus of the research and development in the Berlinbased DFG Research Center MATHEON in the last twelve years. Through these activities MATHEON has become an international trademark for carrying out creative, applicationdriven research in mathematics and for cooperating with industrial partners in the solution of complex problems in key technologies. Modern key technologies have become highly sophisticated, integrating aspects of engineering, computer, business and other sciences. Flexible mathematical models, as well as fast and accurate methods for numerical simulation and optimization open new possibilities to handle the indicated complexities, to react quickly, and to explore new options. Researchers in mathematical fields such as Optimization, Discrete Mathematics, Numerical Analysis, Scientific Computing, Applied Analysis and Stochastic Analysis have to work hand in hand with scientists and engineers to fully exploit this potential and to strengthen the transversal role of mathematics in the solution of the challenging problems in key technologies. This book presents in seven chapters the highlights of the research work carried out in the MATHEON application areas: Life Sciences, Networks, Production, Electronic and Photonic Devices, Finance, Visualization, and Education. The chapters summarize many of the contributions, put them in the context of current mathematical research activities and outline their impact in various key technologies. To make some of the results more easily accessible to the general public, a large number of "showcases" are presented that illustrate a few success stories

Facets of combinatorial optimization : Festschrift for Martin Grötschel by
M Jünger(
Book
)
4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Martin Grötschel 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 on September 10, 2013. Martin Grötschel's doctoral descendant tree 19832012, i.e., the first 30 years, features 39 children, 74 grandchildren, 24 greatgrandchildren, and 2 greatgreatgrandchildren, a total of 139 doctoral descendants. This book starts with a personal tribute to Martin Grötschel by the editors (Part I), a contribution by his very special "predecessor" Manfred Padberg on "Facets and Rank of Integer Polyhedra" (Part II), and the doctoral descendant tree 19832012 (Part III). The core of this book (Part IV) contains 16 contributions, each of which is coauthored by at least one doctoral descendant. The sequence of the articles starts with contributions to the theory of mathematical optimization, including polyhedral combinatorics, extended formulations, mixedinteger convex optimization, superclasses of perfect graphs, efficient algorithms for subtreetelecenters, junctions in acyclic graphs, and preemptive restricted strip covering, as well as efficient approximation of nonpreemptive restricted strip covering. Combinations of new theoretical insights with algorithms and experiments deal with network design problems, combinatorial optimization problems with submodular objective functions, and more general mixedinteger nonlinear optimization problems. Applications include VLSI layout design, systems biology, wireless network design, meanrisk optimization, and gas network optimization. Computational studies include a semidefinite branch and cut approach for the max kcut problem, mixedinteger nonlinear optimal control, and mixedinteger linear optimization for scheduling and routing of flyin safari planes. The two closing articles are devoted to computational advances in general mixedinteger linear optimization, the first by scientists working in industry, the second by scientists working in academia. These articles reflect the "scientific facets" of Martin Grötschel who has set standards in theory, computation, and applications  P.4 of cover
