This book provides a comprehensive overview of the most important and frequently considered optimization problems concerning
cutting and packing. Based on appropriate modeling approaches for the problems considered, it offers an introduction to the
related solution methods. It also addresses aspects like performance results for heuristic algorithms and bounds of the optimal
value, as well as the packability of a given set of objects within a predefined container. The problems discussed arise in
a wide variety of different fields of application and research, and as such, the fundamental knowledge presented in this book
make it a valuable resource for students, practitioners, and researchers who are interested in dealing with such tasks.
