Editorial Reviews


The authors provide a very nice and interesting textbook on the theory and the application of mathematical optimization. . . . The book is written as well as for beginners and for experts. . . . Both types of readers can profit from the given shortcuts and royal roads which jump over some theoretical explanations and lead directly to the applications.

From the Back Cover

"Well written and well organized. The book's examples are highly varied, interesting and well thought out."--Steinar Hauan, Carnegie Mellon University

"An extremely interesting introduction to the field of mathematical optimization. I know of no other book in the field that offers so many illustrations of the applicability of deep theoretical issues in optimization. It will command a broad audience, from beginners to experts."--Kees Roos, Delft University of Technology

Format: Kindle Edition
The Kindle version of this book is of extremely poor quality. It looks like trash.

In 2013, paying customers who fork over almost $70 (USD) for the electronic version of this book deserve more than a crappy HTML-ized version of the printed text where the equations do not scale properly or even line up with the baseline of surrounding text.

By flipping through the free sample provided above and comparing it with a copy of the print edition, one can quickly determine just how badly the publisher has wrecked the typesetting of the formulas by converting the text from native PDF to their own proprietary Kindle format. Only certain formats (PDF being foremost among them) can faithfully preserve all of the elegance and beauty that mathematical typesetting systems like LaTeX can provide.

By refusing to purchase the electronic version, customers can send a strong message to the publisher that they will not accept an inferior product in order to accommodate their desire for digital rights management.

The "Kindle Replica" format is a potential solution to this problem as the latter is nothing more than a DRM-wrapped version of PDF.

Question to the publisher: why are you not offering a Kindle Replica version of this text, because if you did, I would purchase it immediately.

Format: Hardcover
The book is filled with interesting examples and proofs, especially of classical linear algebra results using optimization techniques, but tries to span too many possible audiences. Too textbook-like for a casual read, but not quite a textbook, and too unorganized for a pure reference. Worth flipping through to see if anything stands out to you, but probably not worth having on your shelf. The person most likely to enjoy this book is a prospective or first-year economics grad student interested in the math for its own sake.
