The result of the 1960 Symposium on Mathematical Optimization Techniques which brought together, for the purpose of mutual education, 250 mathematicians, scientists, and engineers. Each of the four sections of the Report deals with a signigicant aspect of optimization: (1) the determination of optimal trajectories for manned and unmanned space flights: (2) the communication and interpretation of signals, and their use in various multistage decision processes, such as radar detection and equipment replacement; (3) the examination of geometric and combinatorial questions directly or indirectly connected with linear and nonlinear programming, and of applications of these theories;(4) the uses of automation, control, and digital computers, including a survey of the modern theory of control processes in the Soviet Union.
