The unification of MP and CP creates optimization methods that have much greater modeling power, increased computational speed, and a sizeable reduction computational coding. Hence the benefits of this integration are substantial, providing the Applied Sciences with a powerful, high-level modeling solution for optimization problems. As reviewers of the book have noted, this integration along with constraint programming being incorporated into a number of programming languages, brings the field a step closer to being able to simply state a problem and having the computer solve it. John Hooker is a leading researcher in both the Optimization and Constraint Programming research communities. He has been an instrumental principal for this integration, and over the years, he has given numerous presentations and tutorials on the integration of these two areas. It is felt by many in the field that the future Optimization courses will increasingly be taught from this integrated framework. 0aMathematics. 0aBusiness. 0aManagement science. 0aOperations research. 0aDecision making. 0aComputer sciencexMathematics. 0aComputers. 0aMathematical models. 0aMathematical optimization.14aMathematics.24aOptimization.24aOperation Research/Decision Theory.24aComputing Methodologies.24aMathematics of Computing.24aMathematical Modeling and Industrial Mathematics.24aBusiness and Management, general.2 aSpringerLink (Online service)0 tSpringer eBooks08iPrinted edition:z9780387382722 0aInternational Series in Operations Research & Management Science,x0884-8289 ;v10040uhttp://dx.doi.org/10.1007/978-0-387-38274-6 aZDB-2-SMA c369489d369489 001040708EBookaelibbelibd2018-01-15r2018-01-15w2018-01-15yEBOOK
