This publication introduces a singular method of discrete optimization, offering either theoretical insights and algorithmic advancements that bring about advancements over cutting-edge know-how. The authors current chapters at the use of selection diagrams for combinatorial optimization and constraint programming, with awareness to general-purpose resolution tools in addition to problem-specific techniques.

The e-book can be important for researchers and practitioners in discrete optimization and constraint programming.

"*Decision Diagrams for Optimization is likely one of the most fun advancements rising from constraint programming lately. This booklet is a compelling precis of current leads to this house and a must-read for optimizers round the world.*" [Pascal Van Hentenryck]

N. 11) indicate that variables x1 , . . , they define a permutation of J . Hence, the set of feasible solutions to the MMP is the set of permutation vectors of J . Note also that the objective function uses variables as indices, which will be shown to be naturally encoded in a DP model (and, consequently, easily represented in a MDD). We now formulate the MMP as a DP model. The state in a particular stage of our model indicates the jobs that were already performed on the machine. The components of the DP model are as follows: • State spaces: In a stage j, a state contains the j − 1 jobs that were performed ˆ for j = 2, .

X j ∈ D(x j ) for each j. We assume here that D(x j ) is finite for all x j . A constraint Ci (x) states an arbitrary relation between two or more variables, and it is satisfied by x if the relation is observed and violated otherwise. A solution to P is any x ∈ D, and a feasible solution to P is any solution that satisfies all constraints Ci (x). The set of feasible solutions of P is denoted by Sol(P). A feasible solution x∗ is optimal for P if f (x∗ ) ≥ f (x) for all x ∈ Sol(P). We denote by z∗ = f (x∗ ) the optimal solution value of P.
