Equitable Resource Allocation: Models, Algorithms and Applications
A unique book that specifically addresses equitable resource allocation problems with applications in communication networks, manufacturing, emergency services, and more
Resource allocation problems focus on assigning limited resources in an economically beneficial way among competing activities. Solutions to such problems affect people and everyday activities with significant impact on the private and public sectors and on society at large.
Using diverse application areas as examples, Equitable Resource Allocation: Models, Algorithms, and Applications provides readers with great insight into a topic that is not widely known in the field. Starting with an overview of the topics covered, the book presents a large variety of resource allocation models with special mathematical structures and provides elegant, efficient algorithms that compute optimal solutions to these models.
Authored by one of the leading researchers in the field, Equitable Resource Allocation:
Bringing together much of the equitable resource allocation research from the past thirty years, this book is a valuable reference for anyone interested in solving diverse optimization problems.
