The editors and authors commit this booklet to Bernhard Korte at the celebration of his 70th birthday. We, the editors, are chuffed in regards to the overwhelming suggestions to our initiative to honor him with this ebook and with a workshop in Bonn on November 3–7,2008.Althoughthiswouldbeareasontolookback,wewouldratherliketolook ahead and spot what are the attention-grabbing examine instructions this day. This booklet is written via major specialists in combinatorial optimization. All - pers have been conscientiously reviewed, and finally twenty-three of the invited papers have been authorized for this booklet. The breadth of subject matters is normal for the eld: combinatorial optimization builds bridges among parts like combinatorics and graph conception, submodular features and matroids, community ows and connectivity, approximation algorithms and mat- matical programming, computational geometry and polyhedral combinatorics. these kind of themes are comparable, and they're all addressed during this ebook. Combi- torial optimization is usually recognized for its quite a few purposes. to restrict the scope, despite the fact that, this booklet isn't basically approximately purposes, even though a few are pointed out at quite a few areas. such a lot papers during this quantity are surveys that supply a great assessment of an activeresearcharea,butthisbookalsocontainsmanynewresults.Highlightingmany of the presently best examine instructions in combinatorial optimization, we are hoping that this booklet constitutes an exceptional foundation for destiny learn in those components.
