Discrete-event Control of Stochastic Networks: Multimodularity and Regularity

Post date: 06 Jan 2007
This book is a counterpart of convex optimization in the setting of discrete optimization. The theory developed is applied to the control of stochastic discrete-event dynamic systems. Some applications are admission, routing, and service allocation.
