Operations Research Calculations Handbook, Second Edition
The revised 2nd edition of the book retained the originality and quality of its first edition but with the added features and topics. The first edition was including only presenting the analytical results and formulas for the quick calculations and for understanding system models but this edition completely reflects the growth and breadth in the field to allow students quick calculations and understanding the system model.
In this edition additional chapters like order statistic, heuristic search method and traffic flow and delay are included to make students familiar with the new topics. Even the sections are added of distance norms, hyper exponential and hypo exponential distributions that provide knowledge for the norms of distance formulas and hyper exponential techniques. Even for further reading reference list and derived formulas have been added.
This handbook includes the practical and theory where needed to provide insight into system performance and even for quick calculations.even the text is well organized with the approach of precise and prompts. This book focuses on the various fields like mathematic, statistics and more to give complete overview of operational research. This book has made this overwhelming subject at an easy access for the students with practical and formulas with and without derivations.
