This volume contains a collection of papers published in memory of Peter L. Hammer (1936-2006). Peter Hammer made substantial contributions to several areas of operations research and discrete mathematics, including, in particular, mathematical programming (linear and quadratic 0--1 programming, pseudo-Boolean optimization, knapsack problems, etc.), combinatorial optimization (transportation problems, network flows, MAXSAT, simple plant location, etc.), graph theory (special classes of graphs, stability problems, and their applications), data mining and classification (Logical Analysis of Data), and, last but not least, Boolean theory (satisfiability, duality, Horn functions, threshold functions, and their applications). The volume contains 23 contributed papers along these lines.
