With the rapid scientific and technological advances in the modern age, new challenging optimization problems are encountered in various fields and disciplines, requiring novel approaches to search for their solutions. Meta-heuristics and stochastic search methods like evolutionary algorithms are a promising approach which have been successfully applied to many real-world problems. Probabilistic modeling is an important tool for dealing with the uncertainty in the problems and several methods have been proposed for automatic learning and inference of probabilistic models. Estimation of distribution algorithms (EDAs) are a class of evolutionary algorithms which utilize probabilistic modeling to enhance the search for solutions of complex optimization problems. In this book, we discuss the use of a well-known statistical technique called regularization for model learning in EDAs and study how it influences the performance of these algorithms in optimization. The discussions are extended to multi-objective optimization where joint variable-objective probabilistic modeling is introduced and analyzed. Our study also covers noisy domains, employing methods based on interval analysis.

Constrained optimization is a challenging branch of operations research that aims to create a model which has a wide range of applications in the supply chain, telecommunications and medical fields. As the problem structure is split into two main components, the objective is to accomplish the feasible set framed by the system constraints. The aim of this book is expose optimization problems that can be expressed as graphs, by detailing, for each studied problem, the set of nodes and the set of edges. This graph modeling is an incentive for designing a platform that integrates all optimization components in order to output the best solution regarding the parameters' tuning. The authors propose in their analysis, for optimization problems, to provide their graphical modeling and mathematical formulation and expose some of their variants. As a solution approaches, an optimizer can be the most promising direction for limited-size instances. For large problem instances, approximate algorithms are the most appropriate way for generating high quality solutions. The authors thus propose, for each studied problem, a greedy algorithm as a problem-specific heuristic and a genetic algorithm as a metaheuristic.

This volume is intended for readers who, whether they be mathematicians, workers in other fields or students, are familiar with the basic approaches and methods of mathematical optimization. The subject matter is concerned with optimization problems in which some or all of the individual data involved depend on one parameter. Such problems are called one-parametric optimization problems. Solution algorithms for such problems are of interest for several reasons. We consider here mainly applications of solution algorithms for one-parametric optimization problems in the following fields: (i) globally convergent algorithms for nonlinear, in particular non-convex, optimization problems, (ii) global optimization, (iii) multi-objective optimization. The main tool for a solution algorithm for a one-parametric optimization problem will be the so-called pathfollowing methods (also called continuation or homotopy methods) (cf. Chapters 3 and 4). Classical methods in the set of stationary points will be extended to the set of all generalized critical points. This could be helpful since the path of stationary points stops in this set, but there is a continuation in the broader set of generalized critical points. However, it will be shown that pathfollowing methods only are not successful in every case. This is the reason why we propose to jump from one connected component in the set of local minimizers and generalized critical points, respectively, to another one (Chapter 5).

This book presents a systematic study consisting of modeling, simulation, and optimization of dynamic operations of energy supply networks with distributed generation (DG) and battery storage systems (BSSs). Based on complex power flow models, different optimization problems are mathematically formulated and solved. In addition, novel mathematical models and a new combined problem formulation for active-reactive optimal power flow (A-R-OPF) in passive distribution networks (PDNs) (without DG units and BSSs) and active distribution networks (ADNs) (with DG units and BSSs) are studied. Typically, distribution networks (DNs) consist of two different networks in terms of voltage levels, namely, low-voltage and medium-voltage DNs. For this reason, investigations are carried out separately on both networks. Modeling procedures for PDNs, ADNs, and energy prices are presented. These procedures serve as the basis for this work.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2010 in the subject Computer Science - Applied, grade: 1, Technical University of Graz (Institute of Geoinformation), course: Geoinformatics, language: English, abstract: The application of real-time spatial optimization in a Spatial Decision Support System, utilizing Geographic Information Science and Technology, is shown using the example of Wood Supply Chain management. Interdisciplinarity is a key concept, because Geographic Information Science, Operations Research and Spatial Decision Support Systems are bundled together. Service Oriented Architectures allow the development of an architecture that consists of several - even spatial - dispersed hard- and software. This approach guarantees a fail safe architecture and paves the way for Ubiquitous Computing and Spatial Data Infrastructures. In addition, spatial data can be gathered and sent out in real-time from/to mobile devices utilizing Location based Services. The dissertation proves, that a specific spatial problem can be solved using mathematical modeling and an appropriate optimization technique. In this work Adaptive Large Neighborhood Search is used. By the fact that the optimization is enveloped in a Spatial Decision Support System, decision makers are involved in the decision process. On the one hand they are able to alter model parameters which alter the optimization process at hand, and on the other hand they can choose one decision alternative recommended by the sys...

Optimization is generally a reduction operation of a definite quantity. This process naturally takes place in our environment and through our activities. For example, many natural systems evolve, in order to minimize their potential energy. Modeling these phenomena then largely relies on our capacity to artificially reproduce these processes. In parallel, optimization problems have quickly emerged from human activities, notably from economic concerns. This book includes the most recent ideas coming from research and industry in the field of optimization, reliability and the recognition of accompanying uncertainties. It is made up of eight chapters which look at the reviewing of uncertainty tools, system reliability, optimal design of structures and their optimization (of sizing, form, topology and multi-objectives) – along with their robustness and issues on optimal safety factors. Optimization reliability coupling will also be tackled in order to take into account the uncertainties in the modeling and resolution of the problems encountered. The book is aimed at students, lecturers, engineers, PhD students and researchers. Contents 1. Uncertainty. 2. Reliability in Mechanical Systems. 3. Optimal Structural Design. 4. Multi-object Optimization with Uncertainty. 5. Robust Optimization. 6. Reliability Optimization. 7. Optimal Security Factors Approach. 8. Reliability-based Topology Optimization.

An accessible treatment of the modeling and solution of integer programming problems, featuring modern applications and software In order to fully comprehend the algorithms associated with integer programming, it is important to understand not only how algorithms work, but also why they work. Applied Integer Programming features a unique emphasis on this point, focusing on problem modeling and solution using commercial software. Taking an application-oriented approach, this book addresses the art and science of mathematical modeling related to the mixed integer programming (MIP) framework and discusses the algorithms and associated practices that enable those models to be solved most efficiently. The book begins with coverage of successful applications, systematic modeling procedures, typical model types, transformation of non-MIP models, combinatorial optimization problem models, and automatic preprocessing to obtain a better formulation. Subsequent chapters present algebraic and geometric basic concepts of linear programming theory and network flows needed for understanding integer programming. Finally, the book concludes with classical and modern solution approaches as well as the key components for building an integrated software system capable of solving large-scale integer programming and combinatorial optimization problems. Throughout the book, the authors demonstrate essential concepts through numerous examples and figures. Each new concept or algorithm is accompanied by a numerical example, and, where applicable, graphics are used to draw together diverse problems or approaches into a unified whole. In addition, features of solution approaches found in today's commercial software are identified throughout the book.

The first book to cover Agile Modeling, a new modeling technique created specifically for XP projects eXtreme Programming (XP) has created a buzz in the software development community-much like Design Patterns did several years ago. Although XP presents a methodology for faster software development, many developers find that XP does not allow for modeling time, which is critical to ensure that a project meets its proposed requirements. They have also found that standard modeling techniques that use the Unified Modeling Language (UML) often do not work with this methodology. In this innovative book, Software Development columnist Scott Ambler presents Agile Modeling (AM)-a technique that he created for modeling XP projects using pieces of the UML and Rational's Unified Process (RUP). Ambler clearly explains AM, and shows readers how to incorporate AM, UML, and RUP into their development projects with the help of numerous case studies integrated throughout the book. AM was created by the author for modeling XP projects-an element lacking in the original XP design The XP community and its creator have embraced AM, which should give this book strong market acceptance Companion Web site at www.agilemodeling.com features updates, links to XP and AM resources, and ongoing case studies about agile modeling.

This book presents a comprehensive treatment of necessary conditions for general optimization problems. The presentation is carried out in the context of a general theory for extremal problems in a topological vector space setting. Following a brief summary of the required background, generalized Lagrange multiplier rules are derived for optimization problems with equality and generalized "inequality" constraints. The treatment stresses the importance of the choice of the underlying set over which the optimization is to be performed, the delicate balance between differentiability-continuity requirements on the constraint functionals, and the manner in which the underlying set is approximated by a convex set. The generalized multiplier rules are used to derive abstract maximum principles for classes of optimization problems defined in terms of operator equations in a Banach space. It is shown that special cases include the usual maximum principles for general optimal control problems described in terms of diverse systems such as ordinary differential equations, functional differential equations, Volterra integral equations, and difference equations. Careful distinction is made throughout the analysis between "local" and "global" maximum principles.Originally published in 1977.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton Universit...

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Cultural Studies - Empiric Cultural Studies, grade: 1, , course: Senior Research Seminar, language: English, abstract: Do Hamline students get an education to become global citizens? According to its mission statement in the Hamline Plan, the College of Liberal Arts at Hamline University (Saint Paul, MN) is dedicated to preparing its students to "compassionate citizens of the world by helping them maximize their intellectual, creative, and leadership potential". The main research question of this paper investigates if the school realizes its goal by analyzing the second language skills Hamline students can gain or are supposed to gain to become a global citizen. Globalization and the "shrinking of the world" lead to the necessity to speak foreign languages since the peoples come closer. Even with the global dominance of English, a global citizen needs to be prepared to face language barriers gaining more knowledge than just knowing the English language. Second language is considered as a window for citizens to learn about the outside world and is hence a window to see different cultures. This micro-level study explores the exposure of students in private liberal arts colleges in the Midwest in the U.S. utilizing Hamline University as an example.
