Optimization Models in a Transition Economy
Ivan V. Sergienko • Mikhail Mikhalevich • Ludmilla Koshlai
This book is useful to anyone who wants to increase profits within their business and improve the quality of their family life and the economic area they live in. Professional economists will greatly benefit from new interdependencies between the well-known micro- and macroeconomic parameter behaviors. Moreover, they will appreciate the new possibilities in steering and changing both transitional and open market economies. Mathematicians will be introduced to new mathematical models as well as efficient methods of finding either feasible or optimal solutions for those models. Employees of state planning and statistical organizations will be able to use the proposed models and solutions for improving existing information technologies and operational abilities of their departments. This book is also beneficial for undergraduate and graduate students specializing in the fields of Economic Informatics, Economic Cybernetics, Applied Mathematics, and Large Information Systems.
The roots of this book arose from pioneering publications, many organizational efforts, and the critical view of our colleague and former director of Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics, Vladimir S. Mikhalevich. Many of our colleagues worldwide have read, discussed, and commented on some of the book’s ideas as well as the book in its entirety. We express our deepest gratitude to Yu.M. Ermol’ev and N.Z. Shor for laying the foundation that allowed the final version of this book to be fully realized.
