    The book deals with the combinatorial geometry of convex bodies in finite-dimensional spaces. A general introduction to geometric convexity is followed by the investigation of d-convexity and H-convexity, and by various applications. Recent research is discussed, for example the three problems from the combinatorial geometry of convex bodies (unsolved in the general case): the Szoekefalvi-Nagy problem, the Borsuk problem, the Hadwiger covering problem. These and related questions are then applied to a new class of convex bodies which is a natural generalization of the class of zonoids: the class of belt bodies. Finally open research problems are discussed. Each section is supplemented by a wide range of exercises and the geometric approach to many topics is illustrated with the help of more than 250 figures
    Mathematical methods of optimal control by V. G Bolti︠a︡nskiĭ( Book )

    11 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    "It should be clearly stated at the outset that the reader will not find in this book any specific techniques for construction and operation of control systems. Rather, we consider the application of mathematical methods to the calculation of optimal controls. Mathematics does not deal with a real object, but instead, treat mathematical models thereof. The mathematical model of a controlled object is defined at the very beginning of this book. The task in practice is to decide whether the real object of interest can be "matched" to the mathematical framework considered here and to carry out those simplifications and idealizations which are deemed to be admissible. If the object falls into the mathematical framework considered here, then one can attempt to use the theory presented in this book."--Preface

    Geometric etudes in combinatorial mathematics by Alexander Soifer( Book )

    7 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    The etudes presented here are not simply those of Czerny, but are better compared to the etudes of Chopin, not only technically demanding and addressed to a variety of specific skills, but at the same time possessing an exceptional beauty that characterizes the best of art ... Keep this book at hand as you plan your next problem solving seminar.-Don Chakerian THE AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL MONTHLY Alexander Soifer's Geometrical Etudes in Combinatorial Mathematics is concerned with beautiful mathematics, and it will likely occupy a special and permanent place in the mathematical literature, challenging and inspiring both novice and expert readers with surprising and exquisite problems and theorems ... He conveys the joy of discovery as well as anyone, and he has chosen a topic that will stand the test of time.-Cecil Rousseau MEMPHIS STATE UNIVERSITY Each time I looked at Geometrical Etudes in Combinatorial Mathematics I found something that was new and surprising to me, even after more than fifty years working in combinatorial geometry. The new edition has been expanded (and updated where needed), by several new delightful chapters. The careful and gradual introduction of topics and results is equally inviting for beginners and for jaded specialists. I hope that the appeal of the book will attract many young mathematicians to the visually attractive problems that keep you guessing how the questions will be answered in the end.-Branko Grünbaum UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, SEATTLE All of Alexander Soifer's books can be viewed as excellent and artful entrees to mathematics in the MAPS mode ... Different people will have different preferences among them, but here is something that Geometric Etudes does better than the others: after bringing the reader into a topic by posing interesting problems, starting from a completely elementary level, it then goes deep. The depth achieved is most spectacular in Chapter 4, on Combinatorial Geometry, which could be used as part or all of a graduate course on the subject, but it is also pretty impressive in Chapter 3, on graph theory, and in Chapter 2, where the infinite pigeon hole principle (infinitely many pigeons, finitely many holes) is used to prove theorems in an important subset of the set of fundamental theorems of analysis.-Peter D. Johnson, Jr. AUBURN UNIVERSITY This interesting and delightful book ... is written both for mature mathematicians interested in somewhat unconventional geometric problems and especially for talented young students who are interested in working on unsolved problems which can be easily understood by beginners and whose solutions perhaps will not require a great deal of knowledge but may require a great deal of ingenuity ... I recommend this book very warmly.-Paul Erdos

    Geometric methods and optimization problems by V. G Bolti︠a︡nskiĭ( Book )

    11 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    This book focuses on three disciplines of applied mathematics: control theory, location science and computational geometry. The authors show how methods and tools from convex geometry in a wider sense can help solve various problems from these disciplines. More precisely they consider mainly the tent method (as an application of a generalized separation theory of convex cones) in nonclassical variational calculus, various median problems in Euclidean and other Minkowski spaces (including a detailed discussion of the Fermat-Torricelli problem) and different types of partitionings of topologically complicated polygonal domains into a minimum number of convex pieces. Figures are used extensively throughout the book and there is also a large collection of exercises. Audience: Graduate students, teachers and researchers

    The robust maximum principle : theory and applications by V. G Bolti︠a︡nskiĭ( Book )

    20 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

    Both refining and extending previous publications by the authors, the material in this¡monograph has been class-tested in mathematical institutions throughout the world. Covering some of the key areas of optimal control theory (OCT){u2014}a rapidly expanding field that has developed to analyze the optimal behavior of a constrained process over time{u2014}the authors use new methods to set out a version of OCT{u2019}s more refined¡{u2018}maximum principle{u2019} designed to solve the problem of constructing optimal control strategies for uncertain systems where some parameters are unknown. Referred to as a {u2018}min-max{u2019} problem, this type of difficulty occurs frequently when dealing with finite uncertain sets. The text begins with a standalone section that reviews classical optimal control theory,¡covering¡the principal topics of the¡maximum principle and dynamic programming and considering the important sub-problems of linear quadratic optimal control and time optimization. Moving on to examine the tent method in detail, the book then¡presents its core material, which is a more robust maximum principle for both deterministic and stochastic systems.¡The results obtained¡have applications¡in 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 in Banach 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 consideration of the min-max linear quadratic (LQ) control problem * 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-dividend management, that illustrate the use of the robust maximum principle in stochastic systems Using powerful new tools in optimal control theory, The Robust Maximum Principle explores material that will be of great interest to post-graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in applied mathematics and engineering, particularly in the area of systems and control
