About this book


Network models are critical tools in business, management, science and industry. Network Models and Optimization: Multiobjective Genetic Algorithm Approach presents an insightful, comprehensive, and up-to-date treatment of multiple objective genetic algorithms to network optimization problems in many disciplines, such as engineering, computer science, operations research, transportation, telecommunication, and manufacturing.

Network Models and Optimization: Multiobjective Genetic Algorithm Approach extensively covers algorithms and applications, including shortest path problems, minimum cost flow problems, maximum flow problems, minimum spanning tree problems, travelling salesman and postman problems, location-allocation problems, project scheduling problems, multistage-based scheduling problems, logistics network problems, communication network problem, and network models in assembly line balancing problems, and airline fleet assignment problems.

Network Models and Optimization: Multiobjective Genetic Algorithm Approach can be used both as a student textbook and as a professional reference for practitioners in many disciplines who use network optimization methods to model and solve problems.
