Computational Mixed Integer Programming

Sponsored by SIAM Activity Group on Optimization

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Room: Sidney Smith 1085

The potential for solving large-scale applied problems has always been a driving force behind the study of combinatorial optimization. The speakers in this minisymposium will describe several computational methodologies for solving problems arising from important applications of mixed integer programming, such as radiation therapy treatment for cancer and set partitioning models arising from vehicle scheduling. They will discuss fundamental methodologies including branch-and-cut algorithms and polyhedral investigation.
