|Abstract||Introduction to basic techniques and problems of mathematical optimization.|
|Objective||The goal is to get a good understanding of some of the most important mathematical optimization techniques used to solve linear programs and basic combinatorial optimization problems.|
|Content||Topics covered in this course include:|
- Linear programming (simplex method, duality theory, shadow prices, ...).
- Basic combinatorial optimization problems (spanning trees, network flows, knapsack problem, ...).
|Literature||Information about relevant literature will be given in the lecture.|
|Prerequisites / Notice||This course is meant for students who did not already attend the course "Mathematical Optimization", which is a more advance lecture covering similar topics and more.|
