Operations Research

Operations Research is the discipline of applying advanced analytical and quantitative methods to help making better decisions. Operations Research is characterized by its broad applicability and by it rigorous mathematical foundations. In the last years, the Operations Research group at DEI gained an internationally-recognized expertise on advanced techniques for solving difficult Operations Research problems. Research topics include:

  • Mixed-Integer Programming (theory and computation)
  • Railways optimization (crew scheduling and timetabling)
  • Logistics and packing problems (facility location and knapsack problems)
  • Green energy (wind farm optimization)
