WONDER minicourse on Random Optimization Problems

6-11-2012 - 9-11-2012

The course concerns well-known problems such as finding a minimal-weight matching or a shortest traveling-salesman route, but under the assumption that parameters of the problem such as edge weights are drawn from a probability distribution. This field is currently rapidly developing. It lies in the intersection of probability theory, statistical physics, combinatorial optimization and computer science. The minicourse is primarily intended for Ph.D. students, but others are of course welcome to join. Read more.

ERC Starting grant for Daniel Dadush

Daniel Dadush (CWI) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1.5 ME for his proposal ‘Towards a Quantitative Theory of Integer Programming’. With this grant, Dadush aims to revolutionize the understanding of integer programming (IP), the most popular method used today for finding optimal solutions to real-world optimization problems.

VICI grant for Nikhil Bansal

Nikhil Bansal has been awarded a Vici grant of 1.5 ME. He is one of the 35 academics to receive this grant from NWO in 2018. Bansal aims to use his grant to develop new algorithmic methods to make discrete decisions in a continuous way. He expects this to lead to applications in the fields of logistics, bio-informatics, chip design and machine learning.
