About this book
Optimization and optimal control are the main tools in decision making. Because of their numerous applications in various disciplines, research in these areas is accelerating at a rapid pace. “Optimization and Optimal Control: Theory and Applications” brings together the latest developments in these areas of research as well as presents applications of these results to a wide range of real-world problems. The book is composed of invited contributions by experts from around the world who work with optimization and optimal control either at a theoretical level or in practice. Some key topics presented include: equilibrium problems, stochastic processes, decision algorithms, scheduling, queuing theory, quantum computing, agriculture, and industrial operations. This volume can serve as a useful resource for researchers, practitioners, and advanced graduate students of mathematics and engineering working in research areas where results in optimization and optimal control can be applied.
