This book focuses primarily on equitable resource allocation and is a valuable reference to those who work to solve diverse optimization problems. Readers can use the algorithms presented in the text into useful software. The introduction provides the reader with an overview of the topics covered throughout the book. Separable nonlinear resource allocation covers topics in formulation and properties of optimal allocations and algorithms, and leads into the basic equitable resource allocation section. Most of the text is highly geared toward equitable resource allocations, focusing in on network flows for fixed routing, bandwidth allocation, broadcasting source and network design applications. Each chapter presents interactive exercises, which will reinforce important concepts and points in each chapter.
