System Modeling and Optimization is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in the recent advances in these two disciplines. The book collects, for the first time, selected articles from the 21st and most recent IFIP TC 7 conference in Sophia Antipolis, France.
Applied mathematicians and computer scientists can attest to the ever-growing influence of these two subjects. The practical applications of system modeling and optimization can be seen in a number of fields: environmental science, transport and telecommunications, image analysis, free boundary problems, bioscience, and non-cylindrical evolution control, to name just a few.
New developments in each of these fields have contributed to a more complex understanding of both system modeling and optimization. Editors John Cagnol and Jean-Paul Zolésio, chairs of the conference, have assembled System Modeling and Optimization to present the most up-to-date developments to professionals and academics alike.
