The ASTRA Group on Combinatorial Optimisation

The ASTRA Group focuses on combinatorial (or: discrete) optimisation, which is about finding discrete values for unknowns such that constraints are satisfied and, optionally, a cost is (near-)minimal or a gain is (near-)maximal.

Applications of combinatorial optimisation include personnel rostering under work regulations and employee preferences; scheduling under precedence and resource allocation constraints; vehicle routing under time windows for deliveries or pick-ups; etc.
