for somebody having a quite strong background in Mathematics, which are some good books for the domain of Operations research? I guess there are textbooks covering topics like linear and nonlinear optimization, convex optimization and quadratic programming, dynamic programming, multicriterial optimizations (did I miss something?)

Thanks, Lucian

If you want books that give a broad introduction to operations research (including optimization, queuing theory etc.)

The classics are:

Operations Research - Ronald Rardin

Operations Research - Wayne Winston

They are excellent from pedagogical point of view.

If you want to get into linear programming, this book is widely regarded to be one of the best:

Linear Programming - Vasek Chvatal.

For nonlinear programming:

Nonlinear programming - Dimitri Bertsekas
