Gromicho Dos Santos Teaching method(s): Lecture Course objectives Integer and Linear Programing in Business Econometrics (Bedrijfseconometrie I): To obtain sound knowledge of models and techniques in deterministic optimization with emphasis on exact optimization algorithms. Course contents Integer and Linear Programing in Business Econometrics (Bedrijfseconometrie I): This course focusses on the optimization of linear and integer programming models. Starting from the mathematical properties of the models explains the working of powerful solutions techniques which are illustrated with the use of Matlab. Illustrations include the usage of linear programming solvers to build powerful algorithms for more challenging problems. The book ‘Integer Programming: Polyhedra and Algorithms’ by Sven O. Krumke which can be found online from http://optimierung.mathematik.uni-kl.de/users/62/TOC.pdf offers a good base for this course.
