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. |
