This handbook is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in understanding the impact of optimization on the problems facing the telecommunications industry. It provides a reference tool for the increasing number of scientists and engineers in telecommunications who depend upon optimization.
This is the first book to cover in detail the field of optimization in telecommunications. It does this by bringing together experts who use optimization to solve problems that arise in telecommunications. Recent optimization developments that are frequently applied to telecommunications are covered. The book's overall objective is to provide a reference tool for the increasing number of scientists and engineers in telecommunications who depend upon optimization. Each chapter in the handbook is of an expository nature, but of scholarly treatment, and includes a brief overview of the state-of-the-art thinking relative to the topic, as well as pointers to the key references in the field. Specialists as well as non-specialists should find this handbook stimulating and helpful.
