Book Description
Linear programming (LP), modeling, and optimization are very much the fundamentals of OR, and no academic program is complete without them. No matter how highly developed one’s LP skills are, however, if a fine appreciation for modeling isn’t developed to make the best use of those skills, then the truly ‘best solutions’ are often not realized, and efforts go wasted.
This book illustrates how to formulate real world problems using linear and quadratic models; how to use efficient algorithms  both old and new  for solving these models; and how to draw useful conclusions and derive useful planning information from the output of these algorithms.
It focus on developing modeling skills to support valid decision making for complex real world problems. It describes the approach as 'intelligent modeling and decision making' to emphasize the importance of employing the best expression of actual problems and then applying the most computationally effective and efficient solution technique for that model.

Algorithms for Decision Making (Mykel Kochenderfer, et al)
This textbook provides a broad introduction to algorithms for decision making under uncertainty, covering the underlying mathematical problem formulations and the algorithms for solving them.

Convex Optimization for Machine Learning (Changho Suh)
This book covers an introduction to convex optimization, one of the powerful and tractable optimization problems that can be efficiently solved on a computer. The goal is to help develop a sense of what convex optimization is, and how it can be used.

Convex Optimization (Stephen Boyd, et al.)
On recognizing convex optimization problems and then finding the most appropriate technique for solving them. It contains many worked examples in fields such as engineering, computer science, mathematics, statistics, finance, and economics.

Introduction to Online Convex Optimization (Elad Hazan)
This book presents a robust machine learning approach that contains elements of mathematical optimization, game theory, and learning theory: an optimization method that learns from experience as more aspects of the problem are observed.

The LION Way: Machine Learning Plus Intelligent Optimization
This book captures the state of the art of the interaction between optimization and machine learning in a way that is accessible to researchers in both fields. Optimization approaches have enjoyed prominence in machine learning because of their wide applicability and attractive theoretical properties.

Convex Bodies and Algebraic Geometry: Theory of Toric Varieties
This book is an accessible introduction to current algebraic geometry of toric varieties gives new insight into continued fractions as well as their higherdimensional analogues, the isoperimetric problem and other questions on convex bodies.

Global Optimization Algorithms  Theory and Application
This book is devoted to global optimization algorithms, which are methods to find optimal solutions for given problems. It especially focuses on Evolutionary Computation by discussing evolutionary algorithms, genetic algorithms, Genetic Programming, etc.

Operations Research  the Art of Making Good Decisions
This book is dedicated to operations research of broad applications, it provides a tool for efficient use of natural resources. Both theory and practice of operations research and its related concepts are covered in the book.

Engineering Design Optimization (Joaquim R. Martins, et al)
The philosophy of this book is to provide a detailed enough explanation and analysis of optimization methods so that readers can implement a basic working version. Practical tips are included for common issues encountered in practical engineering design optimization.
