Based on undergraduate teaching to students in computer science, economics and mathematics at Aarhus University, this is an elementary introduction to convex sets and convex functions with emphasis on concrete computations and examples. Starting from linear inequalities and Fourier–Motzkin elimination, the theory is developed by introducing polyhedra, the double description method and the simplex algorithm, closed convex subsets, convex functions of one and several variables ending with a chapter on convex optimization with the Karush–Kuhn–Tucker conditions, duality and an interior point algorithm. Contents:Fourier–Motzkin Elimination Affine SubspacesConvex SubsetsPolyhedraComputations with PolyhedraClosed Convex Subsets and Separating HyperplanesConvex FunctionsDifferentiable Functions of Several VariablesConvex Functions of Several VariablesConvex OptimizationAppendices:AnalysisLinear (In)dependence and the Rank of a Matrix Readership: Undergraduates focusing on convexity and optimization. Keywords:Convex Sets;Covex Functions;Fourier–Motzkin Eliminination;Karush–Kuhn–Tucker Conditions;Quadratic OptimizationKey Features:Emphasis on viewing introductory convexity as a generalization of linear algebra in finding solutions to linear inequalitiesA key point is computation through concrete algorithms like the double description method. This enables students to carry out non-trivial computations alongside the introduction of the mathematical conceptsConvexity is inherently a geometric subject. However, without computational techniques, the teaching of the subject turns easily into a reproduction of abstractions and definitions. The book addresses this issue at a basic levelReviews: “Overall, the author has managed to keep a sound balance between the different approaches to convexity in geometry, analysis, and applied mathematics. The entire presentation is utmost lucid, didactically well-composed, thematically versatile and essentially self-contained. The large number of instructive examples and illustrating figures will certainly help the unexperienced reader grasp the abstract concepts, methods and results, all of which are treated in a mathematically rigorous way. Also, the emphasis on computational, especially algorithmic methods is a particular feature of this fine undergraduate textbook, which will be a great source for students and instructors like-wise … the book under review is an excellent, rather unique primer on convexity in several branches of mathematics.” Zentralblatt MATH “Undergraduate Convexity would make an excellent textbook. An instructor might choose to have students present some of the examples while he or she provides commentary, perhaps alternating coaching and lecturing. A course taught from this book could be a good transition into more abstract mathematics, exposing students to general theory then giving them the familiar comfort of more computational exercises. One could also use the book as a warm-up to a more advanced course in optimization.” MAA Review “The book is didactically written in a pleasant and lively style, with careful motivation of the considered notions, illuminating examples and pictures, and relevant historical remarks. This is a remarkable book, a readable and attractive introduction to the multi-faceted domain of convexity and its applications.” Nicolae Popovici Stud. Univ. Babes-Bolyai Math “Compared to most modern undergraduate math textbooks, this book is unusually thin and portable. It also contains a wealth of material, presented in a concise and delightful way, accompanied by figures, historical references, pointers to further reading, pictures of great mathematicians and snapshots of pages of their groundbreaking papers. There are numerous exercises, both of computational and theoretical nature. If you want to teach an undergraduate convexity course, this looks like an excellent choice for the textbook.” MathSciNet

The book is an introductory textbook mainly for students of computer science and mathematics. Our guiding phrase is "what every theoretical computer scientist should know about linear programming". A major focus is on applications of linear programming, both in practice and in theory. The book is concise, but at the same time, the main results are covered with complete proofs and in sufficient detail, ready for presentation in class. The book does not require more prerequisites than basic linear algebra, which is summarized in an appendix. One of its main goals is to help the reader to see linear programming "behind the scenes".

The authoritative guide to modeling and solving complex problems with linear programming?extensively revised, expanded, and updated The only book to treat both linear programming techniques and network flows under one cover, Linear Programming and Network Flows, Fourth Edition has been completely updated with the latest developments on the topic. This new edition continues to successfully emphasize modeling concepts, the design and analysis of algorithms, and implementation strategies for problems in a variety of fields, including industrial engineering, management science, operations research, computer science, and mathematics. The book begins with basic results on linear algebra and convex analysis, and a geometrically motivated study of the structure of polyhedral sets is provided. Subsequent chapters include coverage of cycling in the simplex method, interior point methods, and sensitivity and parametric analysis. Newly added topics in the Fourth Edition include: The cycling phenomenon in linear programming and the geometry of cycling Duality relationships with cycling Elaboration on stable factorizations and implementation strategies Stabilized column generation and acceleration of Benders and Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition methods Line search and dual ascent ideas for the out-of-kilter algorithm Heap implementation comments, negative cost circuit insights, and additional convergence analyses for shortest path problems The authors present concepts and techniques that are illustrated by numerical examples along with insights complete with detailed mathematical analysis and justification. An emphasis is placed on providing geometric viewpoints and economic interpretations as well as strengthening the understanding of the fundamental ideas. Each chapter is accompanied by Notes and References sections that provide historical developments in addition to current and future trends. Updated exercises allow readers to test their comprehension of the presented material, and extensive references provide resources for further study. Linear Programming and Network Flows, Fourth Edition is an excellent book for linear programming and network flow courses at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also a valuable resource for applied scientists who would like to refresh their understanding of linear programming and network flow techniques.

(Berklee Press). When you think of jazz composers, who comes to mind? Jelly Roll Morton, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, Bob Brookmeyer. This book is about what they (and many others) do. Jazz composition has evolved into a disciplined art that often evidences great emotional depth and breadth of sophistication. Berklee College of Music legend Ted Pease demystifies the processes involved in writing jazz tunes and in composing episodic and extended jazz works. Jazz Composition: Theory and Practice is a by-product of Pease's 25 years of teaching jazz composition. The accompanying audio helps demonstrate melody, harmony and rhythmic elements of jazz. Also included are a variety of music-writing exercises focused on learning these same elements to help you begin producing your own effective jazz compositions.
