ALOP-Kolloquium with Oliver Stein, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT)
May 17 / 16:00 - 17:00
On Monday, May 17, 2021 at 16:00 c.t. Prof. Dr. Oliver Stein, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) will present his recent work at our colloquium titled:
The granularity concept in mixed-integer optimization
Granularity is a geometrically motivated concept which relaxes the difficulties imposed by integrality
conditions and often provides ways for determining good feasible points of mixed-integer optimization problems
at low computational cost.
We explain how this concept leads to algorithms for the computation of feasible points in mixed-integer
linear, convex, and nonconvex optimization. We also comment on the treatment of equality constraints and
on the integration of the granularity idea into branch-and-bound frameworks.
This presentation will take place via ZOOM. A link will be e-mailed prior to the event.
