Forthcoming Books

  1. Pseudolinear Functions and Optimization

    By Shashi Kant Mishra, Balendu Bhooshan Upadhyay

    This is the first book to focus exclusively on pseudolinear functions, a class of generalized convex functions. It discusses the properties, characterizations, and applications of pseudolinear functions in nonlinear optimization problems, providing numerous examples from everyday life that aid...

  2. Markov Processes

    By James R. Kirkwood

    Series: Advances in Applied Mathematics

    This text fills a niche between a calculus-based probability course and a stochastic processes course typically taken by upper undergraduate students. While Markov processes are touched on in probability courses, this book offers the opportunity to concentrate on the topic when additional study is...

  3. Linear and Integer Optimization

    Theory and Practice, Third Edition

    By Gerard Sierksma, Yori Zwols

    Series: Advances in Applied Mathematics

    Linear optimization, also commonly called linear programming, is a widely used tool for transforming a real-life decision problem into a mathematical model, for designing algorithms to analyze the model, and for solving the real-life problem. Taking a more contemporary approach, this edition is...
