Mathematical Programming

Objectives: Many problems arising from different domains can be formulated as linear and integer programs. The aim of this course is to study the modelisation and resolution techniques for these problems, based on linear and integer programming. We will introduce the main theoretical and algorithmic tools necessary for understanding and applying these techniques. We will also present some real applications to illustrate the algorithms that will be discussed.
