The invited contributions which make up this book are vigorous and relevant papers across a range of interconnected topics in management science. This volume consists of papers which were presented in a conference held at the IC2 Institute of the University of Texas at Austin in October of 1987. All of the papers have been written by excellent scholars whose work in areas ranging from engineering, through economics, management and many of the other social, managerial and natural sciences has been influenced by Dr. Abraham Charnes. In addition to the excellent theoretical contributions a number of applied papers are included in the volume. The first section of the book contains papers which provide insight and perspective on the educational and administrative topics they address. Two describes and interprets Dr. Charnes' contributions to marketing, human resource planning, statistics and engineering. Succeeding sections contain more technical-mathematical papers. Dr. Charnes' research has influenced a variety of mathematical areas; the volume contains papers in semi-infinite programming, linear and nonlinear programming and game theory.

'The book is certainly recommended to libraries of universities and research institutions...' Opsearch March 1993
