13 years have handed because the seminal ebook on knapsack difficulties by way of Martello and Toth seemed. in this party a former colleague exclaimed again in 1990: "How are you able to write 250 pages at the knapsack problem?" certainly, the definition of the knapsack challenge is definitely understood even via a non-expert who won't suspect the presence of not easy examine subject matters during this zone on the first look. in spite of the fact that, within the final decade a number of learn courses contributed new effects for the knapsack challenge in all components of curiosity reminiscent of precise algorithms, heuristics and approximation schemes. additionally, the extension of the knapsack challenge to better dimensions either within the variety of constraints and within the num­ ber of knapsacks, in addition to the amendment of the matter constitution in regards to the to be had merchandise set and the target functionality, results in a couple of attention-grabbing diversifications of sensible relevance that have been the topic of extensive examine over the last few years. as a result, years in the past the assumption arose to provide a brand new monograph protecting not just the latest advancements of the normal knapsack challenge, but in addition giving a finished therapy of the complete knapsack family members together with the siblings equivalent to the subset sum challenge and the bounded and unbounded knapsack challenge, and likewise extra far away family members equivalent to multidimensional, a number of, multiple-choice and quadratic knapsack difficulties in committed chapters.
