About the Authors
  • The study of combinatorial isoperimetric problems exploits similarities between discrete optimization problems and the classical continuous setting. Based on his many years of teaching experience, Larry Harper focuses on global methods of problem solving. His text will enable graduate students and researchers to quickly reach the most current state of research in this topic. Harper includes numerous worked examples, exercises and material about applications to computer science.

    • Global method leads to interesting new insights and results
    • Text designed for graduate students with numerous exercises and examples
    • Author gives applications to computer science to broaden market
