An insightful, comprehensive, and up-to-date treatment of linear, nonlinear, and discrete/combinatorial network optimization problems, their applications, and their analytical and algorithmic methodology.

It covers extensively theory, algorithms, and applications, and it aims to bridge the gap between linear and nonlinear network optimization on one hand, and integer/combinatorial network optimization on the other. It complements several of our books: Convex Optimization Theory (Athena Scientific, 2009), Convex Optimization Algorithms (Athena Scientific, 2015), Introduction to Linear Optimization (Athena Scientific, 1997), Nonlinear Programming (Athena Scientific, 1999), as well as our other book on the subject of network optimization Network Flows and Monotropic Optimization (Athena Scientific, 1998).

From the review by Panos Pardalos (Optimization Methods and Sofware, 2000):

"This beautifully written book provides an introductory treatment of linear, nonlinear, and discrete network optimization problems... The textbook is addressed not only to students of optimization but to all scientists in numerous disciplines who need network optimization methods to model and solve problems. This book is an engaging read and it is highly recommended either as a textbook or as a reference on network optimization."

Among its special features, the book:

The author is McAfee Professor of Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a member of the National Academy of Engineering. He is the recipient of the 2001 A. R. Raggazini ACC education award and the 2009 INFORMS expository writing award.
