Optimization, simulation and control play an increasingly important role in science and industry. Because of their numerous applications in various disciplines, research in these areas is accelerating at a rapid pace.
This volume brings together the latest developments in these areas of research as well as presents applications of these results to a wide range of real-world problems. The book is composed of invited contributions by experts from around the world who work to develop and apply new optimization, simulation and control techniques either at a theoretical level or in practice. Some key topics presented include: equilibrium problems, multi-objective optimization, variational inequalities, stochastic processes, numerical analysis, optimization in signal processing, and various other interdisciplinary applications.
This volume can serve as a useful resource for researchers, practitioners, and advanced graduate students of mathematics and engineering working in research areas where results in optimization, simulation and control can be applied.
