Multicriteria Optimization in Engineering and in the Sciences
ISBN: 9780306427435 / Angielski / Twarda / 406 str. We are rarely asked to. make decisions based on only one criterion; most often, decisions are based on several usually confticting, criteria. In nature, if the design of a system evolves to some final, optimal state, then it must include a balance for the interaction of the system with its surroundings certainly a design based on a variety of criteria. Furthermore, the diversity of nature's designs suggests an infinity of such optimal states. In another sense, decisions simultaneously optimize a finite number of criteria, while there is usually an infinity of optimal solutions. Multicriteria...

Cooperative Stochastic Differential Games
ISBN: 9780387276205 / Angielski / Twarda / 242 str. Stochastic differential games represent one of the most complex forms of decision making under uncertainty. In particular, interactions between strategic behaviors, dynamic evolution and stochastic elements have to be considered simultaneously. The complexity of stochastic differential games generally leads to great difficulties in the derivation of solutions. Cooperative games hold out the promise of more socially optimal and group efficient solutions to problems involving strategic actions. Despite urgent calls for national and international cooperation, the absence of formal solutions...

Global Optimization: From Theory to Implementation
ISBN: 9780387282602 / Angielski / Twarda / 428 str. Most books about global optimization describe the theory of the algorithms, whereas a given implementation's quality never depends exclusively on the theoretical soundness of the algorithms that are implemented. The literature rarely discusses the tuning of algorithmic parameters, implementation tricks, software architectures, and the embedding of local solvers within global solvers. And yet, there are many good software implementations "out there" from which the entire community could learn something. The scope of this book is moving a few steps toward the systematization of the...
