Foundations of Network Optimization and Games (Free PDF)

File Size: 7.09 Mb

This book is about computable mathematical models of infrastructure networks in decision environments that are primarily static or steady state in nature. The models considered are either mathematical programs or noncooperative mathematical games. The numerical methods considered include steepest descent, feasible direction, projection, fixed point, gap function, and computational intelligence algorithms.

The book is a direct outgrowth of teaching and research we have done at Penn State, James Madison University, George Mason University, MIT, Princeton, and the University of Pennsylvania. It is meant for use by students in civil engineering, industrial engineering, systems engineering, and operations research as either a primary or secondary textbook. It is also a reference for researchers specializing in the design and operation of transportation, water resource, telecommunications, and/or energy infrastructure networks.

The book includes quite a large number of numerical examples which we have found instructive to students and scholars who are selecting numerical methods for specific applications. At the same time, the book emphasizes a theoretical core of foundation models, each of which is a point of departure in the descriptive and prescriptive modeling of real networks.
