Building and Solving Mathematical Programming Models in Engineering and Science
Modeling is one of the most appealing areas in engineering and applied sciences. Engineers need to build models to solve real life problems. The aim of a model consists of reproducing the reality as faithfully as possible, trying to understand how the real world behaves, and obtaining the expected responses to given actions or inputs. Many types of models are used in practice, such as differential equations models, function equation models, finite difference and finite element models, mathematical programming models, etc.
