Prerequisites: Basic notions of Operations Research and of computer programming
Target skills and knowledge: Knowledge about advanced Mathematical Programming techniques. Capability of designing and implementing advanced algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems.
Examination methods: Traditional with homeworks.
Assessment criteria: Discussion of the methods and algorithms covered.
Course unit contents: Design of advanced combinatorial optimization algorithms and their application to a prototype problem (STP, Steiner Tree Problem). Mandatory homeworks requiring the actual implementation of all the proposed techniques will be assigned and checked.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Capability of designing and implementing advances models and algorithms for integer linear programming, using dedicated software tools (IBM ILOG CPLEX)
Additional notes about suggested reading: Notes provided by the teacher.
