Mathematical optimization -- Research

Mathematical Optimization

Some of the most fundamental problems in engineering, science, and mathematics would take the most powerful computer in the world several lifetimes to find an optimal solution. However, near-optimal solutions to many of these problems have been discovered thanks to various methods of mathematical optimization. This Topic in Depth looks at some optimization techniques and the areas to which they...
Decision Tree for Optimization Software

H.D. Mittelmann from the Department of Math and Statistics at Arizona State University and P. Spellucci from Department of Mathematics at Technical University Darmstadt have posted this guide entitled, Decision Tree for Optimization Software. The guide "aims at helping you identify ready to use solutions for your optimization problem, or at least to find some way to build such a solution using...
Columbia University: Industrial Engineering and Operations Research

This is the website for Columbia University's Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, which is "concerned with the design, analysis, and control of production and service operations and systems." The website describes two of the Department's research centers. The first, the Center for Applied Probability, supports interdisciplinary research on probability and its...
