This volume presents a comprehensive view of the huge area of the assignment problem, starting from the conceptual foundations laid down since the Twenties by the studies on matching problems, and examining in detail theoretical, algorithmic and practical developments of the various assignment problems. Although the covered area is wide, each of the ten chapters is essentially self contained, and the readers can easily follow a single chapter they are interested in, by encountering few pointers to the essential background given in previous parts.
