Multiprocessor Scheduling, Theory and Applications
by Eugene Levner
Publisher: InTech 2007
Number of pages: 436
This volume contains four major parts that cover the following directions: the state of the art in theory and algorithms for classical and non-standard scheduling problems; new exact optimization algorithms, approximation algorithms with performance guarantees, heuristics and metaheuristics; novel models and approaches to scheduling; and, last but least, several real-life applications and case studies.
