After this course, the student is able to model (hard) optimisation problems as mathematical programs and knows several techniques to solve these problems. Moreover, the student can use general purpose software tools to solve these problems.
This course is devoted to mathematical modelling of hard optimisation problems. We focus on integer programming techniques to solve these optimisation problems. During this course techniques as branch and bound, cutting panes and column generation will be discussed as well as the theory needed to understand these techniques. Furthermore, partially by using LP and ILP solvers, some of these techniques will be implemented.
