This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Conference on Integration of AI and OR Techniques in Constraint Programming for Combinatorial Optimization Problems, CPAIOR 2005, held in Prague, Czech Republic, in May/June 2005. The 26 revised full papers published together with an invited paper and abstracts of 2 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from close to 100 submissions. Methodological and foundational issues from AI , OR, and algorithmics are presented as well as applications to the solution of combinatorial optimization problems in various fields.

This book presents selected papers from the 3rd International Workshop on Computational Engineering held in Stuttgart from October 6 to 10, 2014, bringing together innovative contributions from related fields with computer science and mathematics as an important technical basis among others. The workshop discussed the state of the art and the further evolution of numerical techniques for simulation in engineering and science. We focus on current trends in numerical simulation in science and engineering, new requirements arising from rapidly increasing parallelism in computer architectures, and novel mathematical approaches. Accordingly, the chapters of the book particularly focus on parallel algorithms and performance optimization, coupled systems, and complex applications and optimization.

Operations Research (OR) is a fast-evolving field, which is having a significant impact on its neighbouring disciplines of Business Analytics and Data Science, and on contemporary business and management practices. This handbook provides a comprehensive and cutting edge collection of studies in the area. Views differ on what should be included within the scope of OR. The editors of this volume have taken the view that an inclusive stance is the most helpful, both for theory and practice. Real-world problems often require consideration from both ‘softer’ and ‘harder’ perspectives and need consideration of both predictive and prescriptive problems. In accordance with this inclusive approach to OR, the book is divided into six parts, covering Discrete Optimization, Continuous Optimization, Heuristic Search Optimization, Forecasting, Simulation and Prediction, Problem Structuring and Behavioural OR, and finally some recent OR Applications. This wide-ranging handbook includes a culturally diverse collection of authors, with different perspectives and backgrounds around Operations Research. It will be of tremendous value to researchers, students and practitioners in the field of OR

Mathematical and numerical modelling of the human cardiovascular system has attracted remarkable research interest due to its intrinsic mathematical difficulty and the increasing impact of cardiovascular diseases worldwide. This book addresses the two principal components of the cardiovascular system: arterial circulation and heart function. It systematically describes all aspects of the problem, stating the basic physical principles, analysing the associated mathematical models that comprise PDE and ODE systems, reviewing sound and efficient numerical methods for their approximation, and simulating both benchmark problems and clinically inspired problems. Mathematical modelling itself imposes tremendous challenges, due to the amazing complexity of the cardiovascular system and the need for computational methods that are stable, reliable and efficient. The final part is devoted to control and inverse problems, including parameter estimation, uncertainty quantification and the development of reduced-order models that are important when solving problems with high complexity, which would otherwise be out of reach.

Fur die Analyse des Langzeitverhaltens dynamischer Systeme werden in dieser Dissertation drei neue Ansatze, basierend auf Transferoperator-Methoden, zur Entwicklung effizienter Algorithmen vorgestellt. Zuerst leiten wir eine Diskretisierung auf dunnen Gittern her, um den Fluch der Dimension in den Griff zu bekommen. Die zweite Methode behandelt den infinitesimalen Generator der Transferoperator-Halbgruppe fur zeit-kontinuierliche Systeme. Als Drittes benutzen wir mean-field-Theorie, um die Dynamik von Subsystemen zu beschreiben, wobei besonderes Augenmerk auf die Konformationsanalyse in der Molekuldynamik gerichtet wird. Des Weiteren werden Bedingungen hergeleitet, unter welchen die Galerkin-Projektion des Transferoperators mit einer kleinen zufalligen Storung des zugrunde liegenden Systems in Verbindung gebracht werden kann. In this thesis three new transfer operator based approaches are developed for the analysis of the long-term behavior of dynamical systems. First, a sparse grid discretization is derived in order to deal with the "curse of dimension". The second method considers the infinitesimal generator of the transfer operator semigroup for continuous-time systems. The third method uses mean field theory to describe the dynamics of subsystems; here the main attention is devoted to conformation analysis in molecular dynamics. Further, conditions are derived such that the Galerkin projection of the transfer operator can be related to a small random perturbation of the underlying system.

High-Performance Computing (HPC) delivers higher computational performance to solve problems in science, engineering and finance. There are various HPC resources available for different needs, ranging from cloud computing– that can be used without much expertise and expense – to more tailored hardware, such as Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) or D-Wave’s quantum computer systems. High-Performance Computing in Finance is the first book that provides a state-of-the-art introduction to HPC for finance, capturing both academically and practically relevant problems.
