Ziel dieses Lehrwerkes ist es, eine mathematische Grundlage der linearen, nichtlinearen und diskreten Optimierung und ihrer wichtigsten algorithmischen Ansätze zu entwickeln. Viele der behandelten Probleme werden durch Beispiele aktueller realer Anwendungen motiviert. Dabei wird jedoch nicht versucht, möglichst schnell möglichst viele Algorithmen für „alle Lebenslagen der Optimierung“ anzugeben, sondern ein (bisweilen deutlich aufwendigerer) Weg der konstruktiven Herleitung algorithmischer Ansätze beschritten. Methodisch zentral ist der geometrische Zugang; die zugrunde liegenden geometrischen Vorstellungen werden detailliert entwickelt und durch eine große Anzahl von Skizzen veranschaulicht. Der vorliegende erste Teil enthält wichtige Grundlagen und verschiedene mögliche Einstiege in die Optimierung, die je nach Wunsch umfassend, sektionsweise oder auch nur in Teilen in Lehrveranstaltungen oder im Selbststudium verwendet werden können. Hierzu gehören Diskrete Strukturen und Algorithmen, eine ausführliche Einführung in die Komplexitätstheorie, die Grundlagen der Konvexitätstheorie, die in quick allen Bereichen der Optimierung von fundamentaler Bedeutung ist, der Simplex-Algorithmus sowie die LP-Dualität und ihre Anwendungen.

Contemporary functions to biomolecular technological know-how and DNA computing have created a brand new viewers for automata thought and formal languages. this is often the single introductory ebook to hide such functions. It starts off with a transparent and comfortably understood exposition of the basics that assumes just a history in discrete arithmetic. the 1st 5 chapters provide a gradual yet rigorous assurance of simple rules in addition to themes no longer present in different texts at this point, together with codes, retracts and semiretracts. bankruptcy 6 introduces combinatorics on phrases and makes use of it to explain a visually encouraged method of languages. the ultimate bankruptcy explains recently-developed language conception coming from advancements in bioscience and DNA computing. With over 350 workouts (for which recommendations are available), many examples and illustrations, this article will make an incredible modern advent for college students; others, new to the sphere, will welcome it for self-learning.
