[DMANET] Book announcement: "Optimization in computer engineering -- Theory and applications"

Book announcement: "Optimization in computer engineering -- Theory and

The aim of this book is to provide an overview of classic as well as
new research results on optimization problems and algorithms. Beside
the theoretical basis, the book contains a number of chapters
describing the application of the theory in practice, that is, reports
on successfully solving real-world engineering challenges by means of
optimization algorithms. These case studies are collected from a wide
range of application domains within computer engineering. The
diversity of the presented approaches offers a number of practical
tips and insights into the practical application of optimization
algorithms, highlighting real-world challenges and solutions.
Researchers, practitioners and graduate students will find the book
equally useful.
