“The book amply illustrates the power of combining the strengths of constraint programming, mathematical programming, global optimization, and heuristics by detailing these approaches, by articulating the commonalties among them, and by applying them to a wide range of optimization problems. … this book covers the field both broadly and with sufficient granularity to provide working software engineers and graduate students with both a firm theoretical grasp of optimization and the software techniques needed to solve real-world problems. I recommend the book without reservation.” (Marlin Thomas, ACM Computing Reviews, July, 2012)
