About this book


Optimization is an extremely important area in science and technology which provides powerful and useful tools and techniques for the formulation and solution of a multitude of problems in which we wish, or need, to to find a best possible option or solution. The volume is divided into a coupe of parts which present various aspects of fuzzy optimization, some related more general issues, and applications.
