Collects research and review papers that provide an overview of the main issues, results and open questions in cutting edge research on the fields of modeling, optimization and dynamics
Applies presented theories and techniques to applications in biology, economy, energy, industry, physics, psychology and finance
Features the work of international experts in mathematics, economics and other applied sciences
Exciting area of research in the interface of environmental science, economics and mathematics
This volume explores the emerging and current, cutting-edge theories and methods of modeling, optimization, dynamics and bioeconomy. It provides an overview of the main issues, results and open questions in these fields as well as covers applications to biology, economy, energy, industry, physics, psychology and finance.
The majority of the contributed papers for this volume come from the participants of the International Conference on Modeling, Optimization and Dynamics (ICMOD 2010), a satellite conference of EURO XXIV Lisbon 2010, which took place at Faculty of Sciences of University of Porto, Portugal, and from the Berkeley Bioeconomy Conference 2012, at the University of California, Berkeley, USA.
