Studies on integer optimization in emergency management have attracted engineers and scientists from various disciplines such as management, mathematics, computer science, and other fields. Although there are a large number of literature reports on integer planning and emergency events, few books systematically explain the combination of the two. Researchers need a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of integer programming methods for emergency management.
Integer Optimization and its Computation in Emergency Management investigates the computation theory of integer optimization, developing integer programming methods for emergency management and explores related practical applications. Pursuing a holistic approach, this book establishes a fundamental framework for this topic, intended for graduate students who are interested in operations research and optimization, researchers investigating emergency management, and algorithm design engineers working on integer programming or other optimization applications.
