Discrete Optimisers: Episode 1 - No Plan? Or?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 1 - No Plan? Or?

The perfect plan: mathematicians use discrete optimisation to plan better. But that's no simple task: they must first translate the real problem into an abstract model and develop intelligent processes for finding the best possible solution.

Many roads lead to the destination. How math simplifies our daily life

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 3 - Nodes and Edges

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 3 - Nodes and Edges

Everything is abstract at first. Every important detail needs to be represented using an abstract model. How can a canal be described mathematically? Do nodes and edges help?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 2 - Full Steam Ahead!

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 2 - Full Steam Ahead!

The Kiel Canal. Large ships are only able to pass each other at a few points along the canal and often need to wait. Good planning aims to cut the waiting times – a case for the optimisers...

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 10 - Optimum Outcome?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 10 - Optimum Outcome?

The final test on the Kiel Canal. Today the discrete optimisers’ nodes and edges will be examined in exacting detail. Is everyone satisfied with the outcome?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 9 - Even Better than Optimum?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 9 - Even Better than Optimum?

How can you be certain that a good solution really is the best – and is there mathematical proof?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 8 - Discrete Hotline

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 8 - Discrete Hotline

How can you prove a theorem and what does an algorithm looks like?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 7 - Through to the Final!

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 7 - Through to the Final!

Formulae, lectures and hors d'oeuvres – the discrete optimisers are in the conference mood! But the question is: will they take home the European Excellence in Practice Award?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 6 - Does Theory Equal Euphoria?

Discrete Optimisers: Episode 6 - Does Theory Equal Euphoria?

Theory between euphoria and frustration. Why mathematics and a house of cards have a lot in common – especially if there are cracks…
