About this book

This book gives the reader an insight into the state of the art in the field of multiobjective (linear, nonlinear and combinatorial) programming, goal programming and multiobjective metaheuristics. The 26 papers describe all relevant trends in this fields of research . They  cover a wide range of topics ranging from theoretical investigations to algorithms, dealing with uncertainty, and applications to real world problems such as engineering design, water distribution systems and portfolio selection. The book is based on the papers of the seventh international conference on multiple objective programming and goal programming (MOPGP06).

Reviews

From the reviews: “The purpose of this book is to describe, in a unified manner, several topics in the areas of linear, nonlinear, and combinatorial multiobjective programming, goal programming, and multiobjective heuristics. The book also discusses several applications: portfolio optimization problems, optimal bed allocation in hospitals, scheduling of water distribution systems, routing in Internet protocol (IP) networks, and transportation problems such as train timetable information and airline crew scheduling. … The book is well written. The papers are clearly presented and there are no fundamental technical errors.” (Petrica Pop, ACM Computing Reviews, February, 2010)
