Advances in Operational Research and Statistics
About the Book
This volume contains selected papers from the 2nd Annual International Conference on Operations Research and Statistics (ORS 2012), that was held on the 7th and 8th of May 2012 at the Bali Dynasty Resort, Bali, Indonesia. Used to improve decision-making and efficiency, Operations Research and Statistics are the proper scientific approaches to analyze problems and to make informed decisions. Practicioners and researchers faced with new problems must determine the most effective techniques, given the nature of the system and it’s constraints. The papers presented in this volume are original studies reflecting the most recent results in current venues of research in applications and theory.
Joerg Fliege is Professor for Operational Research at the School of Mathematics in the University of Southampton, UK. He obtained his PhD at the Technical University of Dortmund, Germany. After stays at the University of Berkeley, California, the Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium, the University of Erlangen‐ Nuremberg and the Technical University of Dortmund, he became Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at the University of Birmingham, UK, before moving to his present position in Southampton. His main research interests are in nonlinear optimisation, especially in multiobjective (multicriteria) optimisation and distributed optimisation algorithms, and in the corresponding applications in engineering (especially space engineering and telecommunications engineering), finance, web science, medicine, computer science ect. He is a Fellow of the Operational Research Society and a member of the Steering Committee of Project STA (Space Trajectory Analysis) of the European Space Agency (ESA).
