An unparalleled undertaking, the Wiley Encyclopedia of Operations Research and Management Science (EORMS) is the first multi-volume encyclopedia devoted to advancing the areas of operations research and management science. EORMS has been designed for academic researchers and advanced students as well as professionals looking for timely and authoritative review-type information in this field. The encyclopedia features contributions from diverse and international contributors from academia, industry, business, government and the military.
With its broad and carefully structured coverage of mathematical theory, algorithms, modeling, and application issues in operations research and management science, EORMS will is a vital reference available in print and online formats. The dynamic online presence allows for linking to primary literature and other online resources. Through a systematic program of quarterly updates, EORMS will grow and evolve along with the field itself, ensuring that it will remain a mainstay of operations research and management science for many years to come.
The encyclopedia is comprised of four main sections, including Decision and Risk Analysis and Game Theory, Applications and History, Stochastic Models, and Optimization Models and is organized according to the following hierarchical article structure:
- Introductory articles provide a broad and moderately technical treatment of core topics and are suitable for advanced undergraduate students as well as scientists without a strong background in the field.
- Advanced articles review key areas of research in a citation-rich format similar to that of leading review journals. These articles will be updated regularly ensuring the most up-to-date research in the field is represented.
- Technical articles provide more detailed discussions of key concepts addressed in related articles.
- Case Studies/Historical Interludes present successful and/or interesting examples of operations research/management science methodology in practical or historical contexts.
The online launch of the encyclopedia is scheduled for the spring of 2010, and the print publication will follow in the fall of 2010. Please check back often for news, updates, and announcements.
