Treatment of OR topics which are not covered in the
optimization courses.
The topics discussed in this lecture will be taken from the following list
according to the contents of other courses on optimization:
integer programming,
dynamical programming, inventory models, multicriteria optimization, metaheuristics, integer programming
and if time permits it also decision analysis.
Beyond the theoretical aspect we will discuss applications from different areas.
The aim is to convey some of the most popular models and solution
approaches on the subareas of operations research mentioned above.
Previous knowledge expected: Mathematical Optimization, Probability Theory
Chapters:
The main sources of literature
The practical assessment will be permanent and based on a score of points collected as follows
The overall score is computed as follows
P= 4 * ((k)/(k_a)) + 12*(t) + 14 (p),
where
k number of tasks worked on along the course,
k_a overall number of tasks available during the course,
t overall sum of points credited for presentations (scaled between 0 and 1)
p score of the written exam (scaled between 0 und 1),
Grade obtained for the practical according to the overall score:
5 0 <= P < 15
4 15 <= P <= 18
3 18 < P <= 22
2 22 < P <=26
1 26< P
The lecture will be assessed by an oral examination.
The dates of the exams will be settled in agreement with the students.
There will be up to 3 dates per term if needed;
They will be announced in TUGonline on time;
The registration for the oral exam should be done via TUGonline.
