Vehicle routing: problems, methods, and applications

Contributor(s): Toth, Paolo [Editor] | Vigo, Daniele [Editor].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookSeries: MOS-SIAM Series on Optimization.Publisher: Philadelphia Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics 2014Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xviii, 463 p.ISBN: 9781611973587.Subject(s): Transportation problems - ProgrammingDDC classification: 388.310285 Summary: This second edition replaces The Vehicle Routing Problem (DT09, ISBN: 978-0-898715-79-8), which is no longer available. Vehicle routing problems, among the most studied in combinatorial optimization, arise in many practical contexts (freight distribution and collection, transportation, garbage collection, newspaper delivery, etc.). Operations researchers have made significant developments in the algorithms for their solution, and Vehicle Routing: Problems, Methods, and Applications, Second Edition reflects these advances. The text of the new edition is either completely new or significantly revised andprovides extensive and complete state-of-the-art coverage of vehicle routing by those who have done most of the innovative research in the area;emphasizes methodology related to specific classes of vehicle routing problems and, since vehicle routing is used as a benchmark for all new solution techniques, contains a complete overview of current solutions to combinatorial optimization problems;includes several chapters on important and emerging applications, such as disaster relief and green vehicle routing.(http://bookstore.siam.org/mo18/)
