Indr 363 Mathematical Programming |

## SYLLABUS
Brief Description This course is designed to expose students to the concepts of optimization models and solution methods that include integer variables and nonlinear constraints. The topics covered include: introduction to modeling with integer variables and integer programming; dynamic programming; convexity and nonlinear optimization; applications of various optimization methods in manufacturing, product design, communications networks, transportation, supply chain, and financial systems.

Problem Sessions and Computer Laboratory In order to facilitate the topics covered, this course includes problem sessions and computer laboratory. The problem sessions are intended for strengthening basic problem solving skills and reinforcing the material covered in the lectures. The computer laboratory sessions cover basic skills in developing models and solution algorithms for solving the type of problems covered in the lectures using a software platform, OPL Studio for integer programming problems and GAMS for nonlinear programming problems. Classroom Participation The involvement of the student in all class activities, including computer laboratory and problem sessions, is essential and will be graded.
Homework is assigned to expose students to more complex problems and understanding of the theory, and to evaluate their abilities and knowledge. Students should be prepared to spend considerable time for preparing homework. Students are expected to submit their homework before the due date and time. In addition, there are computer exercises for modeling and solution of mathematical programming problems. The aim of the computer exercises is to help students gain some hands-on experience with state-of-the-art mathematical programming software, OPL Studio. The computer exercises must be submitted by the announced deadline. Each student is required to develop the computer exercises alone from start to end.
Exams for this course are targeted at evaluating the performance of students. So no form of information exchange during the exams will be permitted. There will always be a reasonable time limit at the exams. There are two Midterm exams during the semester and a Final exam at the end of the semester. Final grades will be determined as follows:
