Arc Routing: Problems, Methods, and Applications, by Ãngel

CorberÃ¡n and Gilbert Laporte, Editors.

xxii + 401 pages / Softcover / 978-1-611973-66-2 / List Price

$104.00 / MOS-SIAM Member Price $72.80 / Order Code MO20

This book provides a thorough and up-to-date discussion of arc routing

by world-renowned researchers. Organized by problem type, the book

offers a rigorous treatment of complexity issues, models, algorithms,

and applications. It opens with a historical perspective of the field

and is followed by three sections that cover complexity and the

Chinese Postman and the Rural Postman problems; the Capacitated Arc

Routing Problem and routing problems with min-max and profit

maximization objectives; and important applications, including meter

reading, snow removal, and waste collection.

The book will be of interest to practitioners, researchers, and

graduate students in operations research, engineering, logistics,

mathematics, and business.

Workshop Women in Optimization

Academy of Sciences & Humanities, Heidelberg; March 2 â€“ 4, 2015

Supported by HGS MathComp, MATCH and KoroiBot

Target group: female junior researchers, PhD students and students of

mathematics with a focus on optimization

The goal of the workshop is to provide advanced scientific training in

the field of optimization as well as an opportunity for networking in

the optimization community. By lectures of invited speakers working

in all areas of optimization in academia and industry we want to

present on the one hand a wide scientific spectrum of topics in

mathematical optimization as well as different possible career models

in this field. In addition to these lectures there will be ample

opportunities for discussions and an exchange of experiences.

The 24th Congress on Differential Equations and Applications/14th

Applied Mathematics Congress (CEDYA/CMA 2015) will be hosted at the

University of Cadiz (Spain), on June, 8-12, 2015, in the trimillenary

city of Cadiz.

The Congress on Differential Equations and Applications initiative

arose from a group of mathematicians, mainly from applied mathematics

and mathematical analysis, in order to promote research in

Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Mechanics, Control and

Optimization. The first edition was held in 1978. The congress will

feature the following plenary speakers: Henk Broer, Manuel JesÃºs

Castro DÃaz, Dietmar HÃ¶mberg, Karl Kunisch, JosÃ© Antonio Lozano

Alonso, Alfio Quarteroni, Tomas Sauer, MarÃa Elena VÃ¡zquez CendÃ³n, and

Luis Vega GonzÃ¡lez.

We invite scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and students

(graduate and predoctorate) in all areas of applied mathematics to

participate. There will be limited funding covering the inscription

fee.

Beside the invited plenary talks, there are two formats of

participation: special sessions and contributed talks. Please refer

to the congress website for more details: http://cedya2015-en.uca.es
