About the book

Over the last decades, operational research has represented a scientific milestone in the alignment of mathematical and computational tools to the daily lives of our globalized society. Integer Programming, one of the most widespread mathematical programming techniques in the field, aligns scientific robustness with the ability of their models to adapt to organizational reality. Mathematically, an Integer Programming Problem is a linear programming model in which some or all of the problem variables belong to the integer set. When all variables are integer the model is called pure integer programming; otherwise, it is called mixed-integer programming. This book aims to present the reader to a history of the evolution of Integer Programming and its use in our society. It aims to describe the development of models based on Integer Programming with practical applications in various segments of society, such as healthcare, public transportation, manufacturing, and industry. It also discusses Integer Programming models built for the logistics and supply chain areas in their various possibilities.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Ketrin Polesak

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
