Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization of Supply Chains is an up-to-date introduction to the mathematical theory of supply chains, which focuses on those supply chain networks which are described by partial differential equations. The book discusses modeling of complex supply networks as well as their mathematical theory. In addition, the authors investigate the optimization of some of the discussed models and present the analytical and numerical results on optimization problems. Practical examples demonstrate the applicability of the presented approaches. The book provides an introduction to the topic and also explores the more advanced theoretical and numerical background. Graduate students and researchers, who wish to stay abreast of the latest developments in this field, will be interested in this book; it may be used to teach advanced courses on modeling of physical phenomena as well as introductory courses on supply chain theory.
