An Introduction to Identification by J. P. Norton Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this text covers the theoretical basis for mathematical modeling as well as a variety of identification algorithms and their applications. 1986 edition.
Rich in publications, the well-established field of discrete optimization nevertheless features relatively few books with ready-to-use computer programs. This book, geared toward upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, addresses that need. In addition, it offers a look at the programs' derivation and performance characteristics. Subjects include linear and integer programming, packing and covering, optimization on networks, and coloring and scheduling. A familiarity with design, analysis, and use of computer algorithms is assumed, along with knowledge of programming in Pascal. The book can be used as a supporting text in discrete optimization courses or as a software handbook, with twenty-six programs that execute the most common algorithms in each topic area. Each chapter is self-contained, allowing readers to browse at will.
