Beschreibungen

Modeling Uncertainty: An Examination of Stochastic Theory, Methods, and Applications, is a volume undertaken by the friends and colleagues of Sid Yakowitz in his honor. Fifty internationally known scholars have collectively contributed 30 papers on modeling uncertainty to this volume. Each of these papers was carefully reviewed and in the majority of cases the original submission was revised before being accepted for publication in the book. The papers cover a great variety of topics in probability, statistics, economics, stochastic optimization, control theory, regression analysis, simulation, stochastic programming, Markov decision process, application in the HIV context, and others. There are papers with a theoretical emphasis and others that focus on applications. A number of papers survey the work in a particular area and in a few papers the authors present their personal view of a topic. It is a book with a considerable number of expository articles, which are accessible to a nonexpert - a graduate student in mathematics, statistics, engineering, and economics departments, or just anyone with some mathematical background who is interested in a preliminary exposition of a particular topic. Many of the papers present the state of the art of a specific area or represent original contributions which advance the present state of knowledge. In sum, it is a book of considerable interest to a broad range of academic researchers and students of stochastic systems.

?Moshe Dror joined the Eller College of Management in 1990 and previously taught at Ben Gurion University. He earned his PhD in Management Science from the University of Maryland in 1983. His research focuses on cooperative game theory, cost allocation in inventory and supply chain management, applied combinatorial optimization in transportation, logistics and manufacturing and intelligent solution systems for operations scheduling.Pierre L’Ecuyer is a Professor in the Departement d’Informatique et de Recherche Operationnelle at the Universite de Montreal, since 1990. He holds the Canada Research Chair in Stochastic Simulation and Optimization since 2004 and an Inria International Chair (at Inria-Rennes, France) for 2013–2018. He was a professor in the Departement d’Informatique at Universite Laval (Quebec) from 1983 to 1990. He is a member of the CIRRELT and GERAD research centers, in Montreal. He has published 260 scientific articles, book chapters, and books in various areas, including random number generation, quasi-Monte Carlo methods, efficiency improvement in simulation, sensitivity analysis and optimization for discrete-event simulation models, simulation software, stochastic dynamic programming, and applications in finance, manufacturing, telecommunications, reliability, and service center management. He also developed software libraries and systems for the theoretical and empirical analysis of random number generators and quasi-Monte Carlo point sets, and for general discrete-event simulation. His Google Scholar H-index is 56 and his I10 index is 157.Ferenc Szidarovszky is a senior researcher with the Ridgetop Group Inc. working on theoretical issues concerning reliability, robustness, optimal maintenance and replacement policies and prognostics in complex systems. In addition to these industrial applications he also performs research in systems theory, especially in dynamic economic systems. He has earned two PhD degrees, one in Applied Mathematics and another in Economics in Hungary. The Hungarian Academy of Sciences has awarded him with two higher degrees, Candidate in Mathematics and Doctor of Engineering Sciences. He has performed research in very broad fields of applied mathematics including numerical analysis, optimization, multi-objective programming, game theory, dynamic systems, applied probability and their applications in industrial processes, environment, water resources management, economics, and computer network security, among others. He is the author of 20 books and over 350 articles in international journals in addition to numerous conference presentations and short courses taught in many countries. He currently also has a professor position with the Applied Mathematics Department of the University of Pecs, Hungary, where his duty is a one week long intensive Game Theory Course every year.
