In 2000, the first edition was widely acclaimed and received high praise. J.B. Rosen crowned it “an indispensable resource” and Dingzhu Du lauded it as “the standard most important reference in this very dynamic research field”. Top authors such as Herbert Hauptman (winner of the Nobel Prize) and Leonid Khachiyan (the Ellipsoid theorist) contributed and the second edition keeps these seminal entries. The second edition builds on the success of the former edition with more than 150 completely new entries, designed to ensure that the reference addresses recent areas where optimization theories and techniques have advanced. Particularly heavy attention resulted in health science and transportation, with entries such as “Algorithms for Genomics”, “Optimization and Radiotherapy Treatment Design”, and “Crew Scheduling”.
