Topics covered in the course along with some lecture material (from a similar course taught at MIT).
- Handouts
- Notes by R. Weber
- Textbook by R. Rardin :Optimization in Operations Research, Prentice-Hall, 2000 (available in the Bookstore).
- We will use the XPRESS-MP optimizer and the associated MOSEL modeling language extensively in the course. The students will be asked to develop MOSEL codes of the models discussed in class, and experiment with the models in the computer labs. The Tuesday 8:40-9:30 period will normally be devoted to XPRESS-MP recitations and problem solving by the TA, unless specified otherwise.
The grading system may be changed for the entire class or in
individual cases at the discretion of the instructor.
In particular, class attendance and participation will
be taken into account.
Make-up policy: It is recommended that you do not miss any examination.
A make-up will only be offered to those with a medical report duly certified
by the University Health Center. The make-up will be given with or after the final
exam and will cover the entire course material.

POLICY ON HOMEWORK AND EXAMS
Cheating has serious consequences. The university policy on
plagiarism will be fully applied if anyone is caught cheating on
the homework or examinations. For individual assignments, the students are
required to work on their own.
