Goals
Deepen the knowledge on a wide variety of optimization techniques through a detailed study of state-of-the-art academic literature. Students learn to make appropriate design choices in algorithmic development for a broad range of real-life problems. Students can implement their own solution procedure and judge its quality and performance. Students can communicate their results in a professional way and translate numerical results in clear recommendations for the decision makers.
Description
Students learn how to apply state-of-the-art techniques from mathematical programming, combinatorial optimisation, and heuristics and search methodologies to specific classes of problems as well as to real-life applications in these areas. Students will learn how to read state-of-the-art research articles, to understand the technical details, and to give presentations on the subjects.
Literature
Various recent research articles.
Prerequisites
Algorithms and Optimisation (EBC4049); problems and techniques from combinatorial optimisation and complexity theory, programming skills, heuristics and search methodologies.
