Accurate modeling of scientific problems often leads to the formulation of optimization problems involving continuous and/or discrete variables. In recent years optimization has seen a dramatic increase in activities. This is a natural consequence of new algorithmic developments and the increased power of computers. Many of these problems can be very large, although what is large in optimization reflects not only the size but also the inherent complexity of a problem.
