Mini-course in mathematical programming

Speaker:  Alice Raffaele and Romeo Rizzi - Trento and Verona
  Tuesday, November 20, 2018 at 10:30 AM - 11:30-13:30
This is the first class of an hands on tutorial minicorse in mathematical programing.
Right now, the whole calendar of the planned meetings goes as follows:

First part of the course (10 hours):
- Tuesday 20/11/2018 (Meeting Room 2nd Floor, 11:30-13:30 +
Laboratorio Ciberfisico, 14:30-16:30)
- Wednesday 21/11/2018 (Room M, 15:30-18:30)
- Thursday 22/11/2018 (Laboratorio Ciberfisico, 10:30-13:30)

Second part of the course (10 hours):
- Monday 10/12/2018 (Meeting Room 2nd Floor, 10:30-11:30)
- Tuesday 11/12/2018 (Meeting Room 2nd Floor, 11:30-13:30 +
Laboratorio Ciberfisico, 14:30-16:30)
- Thursday 13/12/2018 (Laboratorio Ciberfisico, 10:30-12:30)
- Monday 17/12/2018 (Meeting Room 2nd Floor, 10:30-11:30)
- Tuesday 18 (Meeting Room 2nd Floor, 11:30-13:30)

Description:
In the first part of the mini-course we will show how to model optimization and feasibility problems as Linear Programs (LP) or Integer Linear Programs (ILP); we will use AMPL and/or GMPL to code and test them on several instances.
In the second part of the mini-course, we will focus on more complicated problems, playing with advanced features of commercial solvers such as Gurobi and GLPK. We would like to introduce methods such as cutting planes, compact formulations, column generations, and practical applications too.
