Operations Research Series


About the Series

Operations Research (OR) uses mathematical models and techniques to solve complex management problems. OR provides a quantitative analysis of the problem from which the management can make an objective decision. OR has drawn upon skills from mathematics, engineering, computer science, economics, and statistics to contribute to a wide variety of applications in business, industry, government, and military. OR methodologies and applications continue to grow and flourish in a number of decision making fields. The series will address this important and emerging area (computational or applied) and provide students, practitioners, and researchers a single source guide in a specialized application or computation area of operations research. These books will be comprehensive but concise, authoritative, easy to read, and should bridge theory and practice.
