“Yeats once remarked that the only two subjects worth of a serious mind are sex and death. Had he been born a generation later, he would have lived long enough to find the perfect embodiment of his thesis in Genet.” —Atlanta Journal “Only a handful of twentieth-century writers, such as Kafka and Proust, have as important, as authoritative, as irrevocable a voice and style.” —Susan Sontag Genet’s sensual and brutal portrait of World War II France unfolds between the poles of his grief for his lover Jean, killed in the Resistance during the liberation of Paris, and his perverse attraction to the collaborator Riton. Elegiac, macabre, chimerical, it is a dark meditation on the mirror images of love and hate, sex and death.

Eva. A Hebrew form of Eve, the first woman. But Eva is not the first woman. Nor does it appear she's the last... Born from the mind of a demented genius, Eva was created for a purpose. Preternaturally strong, possessed of myriad gifts, Eva's secrets continue to elude the Sterling scientists, her mysteries as dark as the Stygian pools of her eyes. She responds to only one—a Sterling soldier; a man whose power and darkness match her own...a man with whom she shares more than she knows. One of Sterling's most powerful warriors, Dante also boasts many gifts—gifts that were thrust upon him. He brought swift justice to those who made him what he is, all save one—the same brilliant mind responsible for his unexpected obsession. Dante's passion for Eva is tortuous. Her beautiful face haunts his dreams, a nightly visit he would gladly welcome...were her face not so like his enemy's.

Decision makers in many areas, from industry to engineering and the social sector, face an increasing need to consider multiple, conflicting objectives in their decision processes. In many cases these real world decision problems can be formulated as multicriteria mathematical optimization models. The solution of such models requires appropriate techniques to compute so called efficient, or Pareto optimal, or compromise solutions that - unlike traditional mathematical programming methods - take the contradictory nature of the criteria into account. This book provides the necessary mathematical foundation of multicriteria optimization to solve nonlinear, linear and combinatorial problems with multiple criteria. Motivational examples illustrate the use of multicriteria optimization in practice. Numerous illustrations and exercises as well as an extensive bibliography are provided. In the new edition a chapter on optimality conditions has been added. The linear programming part has been extended and includes new developments. Moreover, motivational examples are now introducing the majority of chapters.
