SEEKING GRADUATE STUDENTS FOR FALL 2015 (or later): Several topics in
optimization. I am looking for original thinkers who have a good knowledge of
optimization algorithms and skills in software development (especially
experience with parallel or concurrent algorithms). Preference for domestic
applicants, though foreign applicants with strong records may apply.
Optimization algorithms and software. Faster and more effective
algorithms and software for nonlinear, mixed-integer, and linear
Feasibility and infeasibility in
of reaching a feasible solution more quickly for nonlinear and
mixed-integer programs, and of analyzing infeasible optimization
models. Spin-off applications from algorithms for analyzing infeasibility.
Optimization formulation assistants. Automated tools for analyzing and
debugging optimization models. For example, one tool analyzes the
shape of nonlinear functions and regions to help select the correct
Applied optimization. Examples include transistor sizing, DSP
task-to-processor assignment, flexible
manufacturing systems, forestry, scheduling, task assignment in cloud
computing, channel assignment in wireless networks, 3G communications
Data classifiers. A new approach for finding good data
classifiers arises from an infeasibility analysis algorithm. What is
the best way to use this to develop better data classifiers?
