MATH 5794 - Optimization Modeling


Every other year. Principles of model formulation and analysis are developed by presenting a wide variety of applications, both for natural phenomena and social systems. Examples of optimization models to represent natural phenomena include principles of least time and energy. Examples in social systems include resource allocation, environmental control and land management. Specific applications vary, but are chosen to cover a wide scope that considers dichotomies, such as discrete vs. continuous, static vs. dynamic, and deterministic vs. stochastic. Some computer modeling language (like GAMS) is taught. Prereq: Graduate standing in Applied Mathematics or permission of the instructor. : This course assumes that students have the equivalent of a sequence in calculus (e.g., through MATH 2421) and linear algebra (e.g., MATH 3191). Cross-listed with MATH 4794. Max hours: 3 Credits. Semester Hours: 3 to 3
