By Panos M. Pardalos

there was a lot fresh development in approximation algorithms for nonconvex non-stop and discrete difficulties from either a theoretical and a pragmatic standpoint. In discrete (or combinatorial) optimization many techniques were constructed lately that hyperlink the discrete universe to the continual universe via geomet­ ric, analytic, and algebraic strategies. Such ideas comprise worldwide optimization formulations, semidefinite programming, and spectral thought. therefore new ap­ proximate algorithms were came across and plenty of new computational ways were constructed. equally, for lots of non-stop nonconvex optimization prob­ lems, new approximate algorithms were constructed in line with semidefinite professional­ gramming and new randomization ideas. nevertheless, computational complexity, originating from the interactions among machine technological know-how and numeri­ cal optimization, is likely one of the significant theories that experience revolutionized the method of fixing optimization difficulties and to reading their intrinsic hassle. the main target of complexity is the research of no matter if current algorithms are effective for the answer of difficulties, and which difficulties usually are tractable. the hunt for constructing effective algorithms leads additionally to stylish common ways for fixing optimization difficulties, and divulges striking connections between difficulties and their options. A convention on Approximation and Complexity in Numerical Optimization: Con­ tinuous and Discrete difficulties was once held in the course of February 28 to March 2, 1999 on the middle for utilized Optimization of the college of Florida.
