This encyclopedia provides decision-makers in Operations Research with a comprehensive overview of the range of ideas and forces that combine in OR/MS. New topics for the third edition, include yield management, flexible queuing systems, service management, local search, tolerance sensitivity analysis, influence diagrams, knowledge management, strategy and policy making, school districting, computational biology.

From the book reviews: "By supplying clear overviews of critical conversations from the diverse disciplines that participate in OR/MS, and by integrating lists of references to support additional exploration, the editors and their contributors provide an accessible gateway to the larger realm of scholarly work in this field. Recommended not only for institutions with OR/MS programs or practitioners but also for those with an interest in exploring the intersections of OR/MS with its many related fields."
