In the context of sports leagues scheduling (SLS) several groups' interests must be taken into account. This book treats requirements for sport leagues schedules to be realizable from an operational and a security point of view, attractive for spectators and TV channels, and fair for the competing teams. Formal problem definitions as well as integer programming models are presented and analyzed.

Complex Scheduling

The objective function value of this schedule is w1T1 + w2T2 = 1 · 0+2 · (14 − 12) = 4. 2 Application 1.4: Sports league scheduling In a basic sports league scheduling problem we are given a league consisting of 2n different teams i ...

Scheduling problems have been investigated since the late ?fties. Two types of applications have mainly motivated research in this area: project planning and machine scheduling. While in machine scheduling a large number of speci?c scheduling situations depending on the machine environment and the job c- racteristicshavebeenconsidered, theearlyworkinprojectplanninginvestigated scheduling situations with precedence constraints between activities assuming that su?cient resources are available to perform the activities. More recently, in project scheduling scarce resources have been taken into account leading to so-called resource-constrained project scheduling problems. On the other hand, also in machine scheduling more general and complex problems have been - vestigated. Due to these developments today both areas are much closer to each other. Furthermore, applications like timetabling, rostering or industrial scheduling are connected to both areas. This book deals with such complex scheduling problems and methods to solve them. It consists of three parts: The ?rst part (Chapters 1 and 2) contains a description of basic scheduling models with applications and an introduction into discrete optimization (covering complexity, shortest path algorithms, linear programming, network ?ow algorithms and general optimization methods). In the second part (Chapter 3) resource-constrained project scheduling problems are considered. Especially, methods like constraint propagation, branch-a- bound algorithms and heuristic procedures are described. Furthermore, lower bounds and general objective functions are discussed.

Through key research papers from Palgrave's Journal of Operational Research, this book showcases how Operational Research can be applied to sports in a variety of ways, including: timetabling fixtures; scheduling officials; forecasting outcomes; optimizing tactics and strategy; analyzing the effects of rules and laws; planning issues, and performance measurement. The introductory chapter provides a broad overview with an examination of how this area has developed over time, and a look at its wide ranging applications to sports including football, tennis and cricket etc.

This book provides an overview of biomedical applications in sports, including reviews of the current state-of-the art methodologies and research areas. Basic principles with specific case studies from different types of sports as well as suggested student activities and homework problems are included. Equipment design and manufacturing, quantitative evaluation methods, and sports medicine are given special focus. Biomechanical Principles and Applications in Sports can be used as a textbook in a sports technology or sports engineering program, and is also ideal for graduate students and researchers in biomedical engineering, physics, and sports physiology. It can also serve as a useful reference for professional athletes and coaches interested in gaining a deeper understanding of biomechanics and exercise physiology to improve athletic performance.
