From the Preface… The education of this publication began in 2004, whilst George B. Dantzig and that i, following a long-standing invitation via Fred Hillier to give a contribution a quantity to his overseas sequence in Operations study and administration technology, determined ultimately to head forward with modifying a quantity on stochastic programming. the sphere of stochastic programming (also often called optimization lower than uncertainty or making plans below uncertainty) had complicated considerably within the final 20 years, either theoretically and in perform. George Dantzig and that i felt that it'd be priceless to exhibit a few of these advances and to give what one may well name the state-of- the-art of the sphere to a broader viewers. We invited researchers whom we thought of to be top specialists in a variety of specialties of the sector, together with a number of representatives of promising advancements within the making, to put in writing a bankruptcy for the amount. regrettably, to the nice lack of we all, George Dantzig kicked the bucket on may perhaps thirteen, 2005. inspired by way of many colleagues, i made a decision to proceed with the publication and edit it as a quantity devoted to George Dantzig. administration technological know-how released in 2005 a unique quantity that includes the “Ten so much Influential Papers of the 1st 50 Years of administration Science.” George Dantzig’s unique 1955 stochastic programming paper, “Linear Programming less than Uncertainty,” used to be featured between those ten. listening to approximately this, George Dantzig instructed that his 1955 paper be the 1st bankruptcy of this e-book. The imaginative and prescient expressed in that paper supplies an enormous medical and old standpoint to the book.
