"This book provides an excellent introduction and survey of traditional fields of combinatorial optimization... It is indeed one of the best and most complete texts on combinatorial optimization... available. [And] with more than 700 entries, [it] has quite an exhaustive reference list."
"A unifying approach to optimization problems is to formulate them like linear programming problems, while restricting some or all of the variables to the integers. This book is an encyclopedic resource for such formulations, as well as for understanding the structure of and solving the resulting integer programming problems."
- Computing Reviews
"[This book] can serve as a basis for various graduate courses on discrete
optimization as well as a reference book for researchers and practitioners."
- Mathematical Reviews
"This comprehensive and wide-ranging book will undoubtedly become a standard reference book for all those in the field of combinatorial optimization."
- Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society
"This text should be required reading for anybody who intends to do research in this area or even just to keep abreast of developments."
