Thesubjectofthisbookisthenested walls method(NP),arelativelynew optimization strategy that has been discovered to be very e?ective fixing discrete optimization difficulties. Such discrete difficulties are universal in lots of sensible purposes and the NP strategy is therefore valuable in different program components. it may be utilized to either operational and making plans difficulties and has been validated to e?ectively clear up complicated difficulties in either production and repair industries. to demonstrate its wide applicability and e?ectiveness, during this e-book we'll express how the NP technique has been winning in fixing complicated difficulties in making plans and scheduling, logistics and transportation, provide chain layout, information mining, and future health care.
