About these proceedings


System Modelling and Optimization covers research issues within systems theory, optimization, modelling, and computing. It includes contributions to structural mechanics, integer programming, nonlinear programming, interior point methods, dynamical systems, stability analysis, stochastic optimization, bilevel optimization, and semidefinite programming. Several survey papers written by leading experts in their fields complement new developments in theory and applications.
This book contains most of the invited papers and a few carefully selected submitted papers that were presented at the 19th IFIP TC7 Conference on System Modelling and Optimization, which was held in Cambridge, England, from July 12 to 16, 1999, and sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP).
