Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics #90: Global Methods for Combinatorial Isoperimetric Problemsby Larry Harper
Synopses & Reviews
The study of combinatorial isoperimetric problems exploits similarities between discrete optimization problems and the classical continuous setting. Based on his many years of teaching experience, Larry Harper focuses on global methods of problem solving. His text will enable graduate students and researchers to quickly reach the most current state of research in this topic. Harper includes numerous worked examples, exercises and material about applications to computer science.
Based on Professor Harper's substantial experience in teaching global methods in combinatorial optimisation and is ideal for graduate students entering the field as well as experienced researchers. The author has increased the utility of the text for teaching by including worked examples, exercises and material about applications to computer science.
This book is based on Professor Harper's many years experience in teaching global methods in combinatorial optimisation and is ideal for graduate students entering the field. The author has increased the utility of the text for teaching by including worked examples, exercises and material about applications to computer science. Applied systematically, the global point of view can lead to surprising insights and results and established researchers will find this to be a valuable reference work on an innovative method for problem solving.
This 2004 text explores global methods in combinatorial optimization and is suitable for graduate students and researchers.
Global methods in combinatorial optimisation for graduate students and researchers. Exercises and applications to computer science.
