Dissertation Theses

Dissertation theses usually deal with complex mathematical optimization problems for which so far no efficient solution methods exist. Often such optimization problems occur in practical applications in industry, economics or engineering sciences. The investigated optimization problems all contain the common structure of discrete decisions, i.e., either yes/no (0/1) decisions or integer numbers. Typically, such optimization tasks can be formulated via mixed-integer linear or nonlinear optimization problems (MIP or MINLP). A dissertation thesis usually includes the development of a solution method, based on a mathematical analysis of the corresponding mathematical structures. The solution methodology is mostly tested on real-world or realistic data.
