Lärandemål (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The aim is to get acquainted with different types of nonlinear optimization problems and optimization methodologies including optimality conditions, some well-known nonlinear programming methods. A major emphasis will be given in introducing evolutionary optimization methodologies and their scope in solving practical optimization problems. Issues such as constrained handling, multi-objective optimization and decision-making, customization procedures, hybrid methodologies, uncertainty-based optimization, multi-level optimization, and large-scale optimization will be covered. A number of cases studies from indus-tries will be discussed.

Innehåll (är i kraft 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Part A: Optimization Fundamentals: Scope of optimization in economics, sci-ence and engineering, optimization basics, Structured optimization, such as integer programming and linear and quadratic programming.
Part B: Evolutionary Optimization: Fundamentals, constrained handling, cus-tomization methodologies, multi-objective optimization and decision-making, uncertainty handling leading to robust and reliability-based optimization, bilevel optimization.
