The primary purpose of Tutorials on Emerging Methodologies and Applications in Operations Research is to provide a reference for practitioners and academics who seek a clear, concise presentation of developing methodologies, hence providing themselves with the capability to apply these methods to new problems.

Each chapter examines each topic with clarity and depth, and organizes the examination around the following questions: (1) What the developing methodology basically is about? (2) Why is it important? and (3) Where can I learn more?Greenberg, Harvey J. is the author of 'Tutorials on Emerging Methodologies and Applications in Operations Research Presented at INFORMS 2004, Denver, CO', published 2004 under ISBN 9780387228266 and ISBN 0387228268.
