Disjunctive Programming is a technique and a discipline initiated by the author in the early 1970's, which has become a central tool for solving nonconvex optimization problems like pure or mixed integer programs, through convexification (cutting plane) procedures combined with enumeration. It has played a major role in the revolution in the state of the art of Integer Programming that took place roughly during the period 1990-2010.

The main benefit that the reader may acquire from reading this book is a deeper understanding of the theoretical underpinnings and of the applications potential of disjunctive programming, which range from more efficient problem formulation to enhanced modeling capability and improved solution methods for integer and combinatorial optimization.

"Balas provides a very thorough and authoritative account of the theory of disjunctive programming and its applications to 0-1 MILP. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers working in integer programming." (Brian Borchers, MAA Reviews, September 22, 2019)"The major strength of this book is the clear and nice style of presentation. Various concepts are illustrated with examples in an elegant manner. This book is recommended as a resource for both independent study and teaching purposes, but because of its rigorous style it can also be used as a valuable reference for research purposes. It is a distinguished contribution to the field, and we recommend it to students, researchers and practitioners in the area of optimization." (Samir Kumar Neogy, Mathematical Reviews, July, 2019)

"The book is nicely written and all the chapters are well organized. Overall, this book offers a very good introduction to disjunctive programming. In fact, I find that all the chapters are interesting. The presentation is clear and lucid. ... the book is an interesting piece of work and it is highly recommended for students, researchers and practitioners of optimization."
