ALOP Colloquium with Arie M.C.A. Koster
October 29 / 16:00 - 18:00
On Monday, October 29, 2018 at 16:00 c.t. Prof. Dr. Ir. Arie M.C. A. Koster of RWTH Aachen will present his recent work entitled
Robust Combinatorial Optimization – New Problems and Solutions
The growing need to deal with uncertainties in optimization processes has lead to many new research directions. In robust optimization, an uncertainty set has to be defined containing all scenarios to be considered. Availability of historical data often suggests the use of a discrete or polyhedral uncertainty set. By this, new combinatorial optimization problems are evolved.
In this talk, we discuss a few examples of novel combinatorial optimization problems inspired by uncertainties in network design and production planning. Further, this talk should motivate research on the additional complexity introduced by uncertainties.
The presentation will take place in HS 9.
Please join us for coffee at 15:45 in E10.
