Economics is a science which studies human behaviours as a relationship between ends and scarce means which have alternative uses. Since economic resources are scarce, optimisation forms an integral part in the study of economics. In addition, in the presence of imperfect market structure, externalities, imperfect information or public goods, the market fails to provide an efficient allocation mechanism. Optimisation of economic activities provides an effective remedial measure for market failures. This contributed volume collects advances in the studies of economics and optimisation. Contributions cover areas on analysis of optimal allocation of economic resources, economic optimisation techniques, the interface economics and optimisation, optimisation under market mechanism and history of development of optimisation techniques. The studies assembled in this volume are dedicated to the memory of a pioneering researcher and Nobel Laureate in the field of economic optimisation -- Leonid Vitalyevich Kantorovich. In his 100th birthday tribute in 2012, the International Conference Mathematics, Economic, Management: Kantorovich-100 in St-Petersburg was held in his memory. Selected papers from the conference are included in this Volume. In addition, contributed papers from authors who had worked closely with Kantorovich are also contained.
Optimization in Quality Control presents a broad survey of the state of the art in optimization in quality, and focuses on industrial and national competitiveness. Each chapter has been carefully developed and refereed anonymously by experts in the area of optimization in quality control. Some of the topics covered in this volume include:
This book deals with combinatorial aspects of epistasis, a notion that existed for years in genetics and appeared in the ?eld of evolutionary algorithms in the early 1990s. Even thoughthe?rst chapterputsepistasisintheperspective ofevolutionary algorithms and arti?cial intelligence, and applications occasionally pop up in other chapters, thisbookisessentiallyaboutmathematics, aboutcombinatorialtechniques to compute in an e?cient and mathematically elegant way what will be de?ned as normalized epistasis. Some of the material in this book ?nds its origin in the PhD theses of Hugo Van Hove  and Dominique Suys . The sixth chapter also contains material that appeared in the dissertation of Luk Schoofs . Together with that of M. Teresa Iglesias , these dissertations form the backbone of a decade of mathematical ventures in the world of epistasis. The authors wish to acknowledge support from the Flemish Fund of Scienti?c - search (FWO-Vlaanderen) and of the Xunta de Galicia. They also wish to explicitly mentiontheintellectualandmoralsupporttheyreceivedthroughoutthepreparation of this work from their family and their colleagues Emilio Villanueva, Jose Mar'a Barja and Arnold Beckelheimer, as well as our local T T Xpert Jan Adriaenssens.
Research as a Tool for Empowerment: Theory Informing Practice will be an edited volume that will include an array of research-based chapters that not only further the field of second/foreign language research, but that also provide practical implications to language classrooms in international and national settings. Unlike previous anthologies in second/foreign language research, this proposed volume will present studies from various research paradigms: quantitative, qualitative, teacher-research, and mixed-methods research. Each of these three sections is tied together by the overall theme of empowerment.
This is a simple guide to search engine optimization, written in layman's simplicity, geared specifically toward authors and using the best genre keywords for writers to use on blogs and book distributors such as Amazon. It is basic, basic, basic. No mention of HTML or any kind of coding. In fact, if you dabble in website coding or have any previous knowledge of how basic SEO works, keep on scrolling to other optimization guides. I know, I know. Book descriptions are supposed to encourage buying of this particular book. And you should if you are brand spanking new to how search engines and web crawlers work. But if you're looking for more advanced coding, this isn't the guide for that. Not by a long shot. So writers and bloggers new to search engine optimization, this short (25 pages) guide with screen shot examples is ideal. More advanced SEO specialists...move along. From Author Lavender Daye: "Most of the writers who buy this will be like me: desperately in need of the information and how to incorporate it, but with little (or slowly developing) techno savvy."
