401-0647-00LIntroduction to Mathematical Optimization Information 5 credits2V + 1UU.‑U. Haus, R. Zenklusen
AbstractIntroduction to basic techniques and problems of mathematical optimization.
ObjectiveThe 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.
ContentTopics covered in this course include:
- Linear programming (simplex method, duality theory, shadow prices, ...).
- Basic combinatorial optimization problems (spanning trees, network flows, knapsack problem, ...).
LiteratureInformation about relevant literature will be given in the lecture.
Prerequisites / NoticeThis 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.
