This book explores the updated version of the GLOBAL algorithm which contains improvements for a local search algorithm and new Java implementations. Efficiency comparisons to earlier versions and on the increased speed achieved by the parallelization, are detailed. Examples are provided for students as well as researchers and practitioners in optimization, operations research, and mathematics to compose their own scripts with ease. A GLOBAL manual is presented in the appendix to assist new users with modules and test functions. GLOBAL is a successful stochastic multistart global optimization algorithm that has passed several computational tests, and is efficient and reliable for small to medium dimensional global optimization problems. The algorithm uses clustering to ensure efficiency and is modular in regard to the two local search methods it starts with, but though it can easily apply other local techniques. The strength of this algorithm lays lies in its reliability and adaptive algorithm parameters. The GLOBAL algorithm is free to download in the earlier Fortran, C, and MATLAB implementations.
This book describes how a model for optimizing the energy supply system in Germany can be implemented. It focuses on the open energy modeling framework (Oemof) program for modeling energy supply systems. The individual elements of Oemof are described, as well as the model´s structure. The technical components of Oemof are subsequently demonstrated in mathematical calculations, along with sufficient Python code to begin basic modeling. The book will appeal to anyone with an interest in optimization models for energy supply systems, or in the mathematical description of the technical components of such systems in practical implementation, using a real example, Oemof. Thermodynamic descriptions of combustion are provided, so that readers can focus on modeling aspects. Researchers and practitioners will also find the book useful, as it expands on their knowledge of the technical components of energy supply systems, supported with detailed mathematical calculations.

This audiobook is designed to be useful to everyone from beginning website owners to intermediate and advanced website developers and marketers. The opening chapters cover the basics, before Colascione dives into the more detailed information that people need to build, market and maintain a successful website on Google. The progression takes listeners from the starting point of registering their domain name all the way through website editing software, and to Search Engine Optimization for developed sites, including insight into the most sophisticated search engine algorithms, like Google Panda and Google Penguin, which ultimately determine how high websites are ranked. The first few chapters cover domain names and web hosting as well as IP´s, DNS, website builders, web-editing software, like Dreamweaver and Photoshop, and how to get a site started. Do not let this initial simplicity fool you. After the basics are out of the way, the book covers Search Engine Optimization specifically for Google and how you should go about building and optimizing a website. There are several chapters on text links, due to the importance they play in search visibility, and what to avoid (Google Penguin), as well as what to go after. After the semi-intermediate topics are out of the way, the listener dives into search algorithms, advanced content marketing, reputation management, social media, some strategic ideas, and most of the new things Google is doing. Finally, together with the author, the listener tears deep into some Google Patents, specifically, DOCUMENT SCORING BASED ON DOCUMENT CONTENT UPDATE (Google Panda/Content Freshness) and METHOD FOR NODE RANKING IN A LINKED DATABASE (PageRank/Links), all of which are extremely relevant to what is happening with today´s advanced algorithms. The book concludes with advice and predictions from the author for the future. This book is about fully understanding everything to do with your website and what it means to G... 1.

Networked control systems are increasingly ubiquitous today, with applications ranging from vehicle communication and adaptive power grids to space exploration and economics. The optimal design of such systems presents major challenges, requiring tools from various disciplines within applied mathematics such as decentralized control, stochastic control, information theory, and quantization. A thorough, self-contained book, Stochastic Networked Control Systems: Stabilization and Optimization under Information Constraints aims to connect these diverse disciplines with precision and rigor, while conveying design guidelines to controller architects. Unique in the literature, it lays a comprehensive theoretical foundation for the study of networked control systems, and introduces an array of concrete tools for work in the field. Salient features included: · Characterization, comparison and optimal design of information structures in static and dynamic teams. Operational, structural and topological properties of information structures in optimal decision making, with a systematic program for generating optimal encoding and control policies. The notion of signaling, and its utilization in stabilization and optimization of decentralized control systems. · Presentation of mathematical methods for stochastic stability of networked control systems using random-time, state-dependent drift conditions and martingale methods. · Characterization and study of information channels leading to various forms of stochastic stability such as stationarity, ergodicity, and quadratic stability; and connections with information and quantization theories. Analysis of various classes of centralized and decentralized control systems. · Jointly optimal design of encoding and control policies over various information channels and under general optimization criteria, including a detailed coverage of linear-quadratic-Gaussian models. · Decentralized agreement and dynamic optimization under information constraints. This monograph is geared toward a broad audience of academic and industrial researchers interested in control theory, information theory, optimization, economics, and applied mathematics. It could likewise serve as a supplemental graduate text. The reader is expected to have some familiarity with linear systems, stochastic processes, and Markov chains, but the necessary background can also be acquired in part through the four appendices included at the end. · Characterization, comparison and optimal design of information structures in static and dynamic teams.
