2002-2008 Activity Report




Center for Applied Optimization

Modeling and Computation for Engineering, Science and Industry
University of Florida, Gainesville FL 32611
http://www.ise.ufl.edu/cao



The Center for Applied Optimization at the University of Florida is an interdisciplinary center which
encourages joint research and applied projects among faculty from engineering, mathematics and business.
It also encourages increased awareness of the rapidly growing field of optimization through publications,
conferences, joint research and student exchange. It was founded in September 1992. The co-directors are
Dr. Panos Pardalos of the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering and Dr. William Hager of the
Department of Mathematics. Center affiliates include faculty from Industrial and Systems Engineering, Civil
Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Mechanics and Engineering Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer
and Information Sciences, Ch. I,,. .1 Engineering, Mathematics, and Decision and Information Sciences.

Optimization may be characterized as determining the maximum benefit of a decision process by the use
of mathematical modeling. For example, the most well-known technique, linear programming, has long been
used by large companies in resource allocation, capital budgeting, production planning, facility location,
vehicle routing and scheduling and many other decision problems. Typically these problems are very large
with many variables and restrictions on the decision process. With optimization modeling and the help
of fast computers for numerical computation, organizations of all sizes can now make more accurate and
beneficial decisions.

Optimization also embodies fundamental mathematical principles which arise in technical areas such as
engineering design, control of dynamic processes, and systems analysis. Numerical optimization plays a key
role in solving models of many such complex processes. Thus an important activity of the Center is the
development of optimization software.

Current applied projects include applications in biomedicine, data analysis and data mining, random-
ization in algorithm design, multidimensional assignment problems, molecular conformation problems, mod-
eling and solutions of water management problems, evacuation modeling, warehouse location problems, and
weather analysis and forecasting. Sponsors include the National Science Foundation, National Institute of
Health, Industries, AirForce, the Army Research Office and Florida Water Management Districts.

The Center is interested in promoting collaboration with researchers at other universities through visitors
and student exchange. It administers a program for visiting students from the Royal Institute of Technology
(KTH), Stockholm.

The CAO has been involved in organizing international conferences and workshops in many diverse areas

of applied optimization. The topics of these conferences range from algorithms for large-scale optimization
and networks, cooperative control and optimization, to data miming in biomedicine and computational
neuroscience. Most of these conferences have been supported by federal agencies, industries, and other
organizations. The conferences have attracted the best people working in the field of optimization. Special
efforts were made to include CAO graduate student participation in these conferences.

In addition, both directors of CAO are active in publishing.

P. Pardalos is the editor in C',. f of:

Journal of Global Optimization (JOGO)

Journal of Optimization Letters (OPTL)

Journal of Computational Management Science(CMS)

as well as the managing editor of several book series. One major publication activity of CAO, is the
publication of the multi-volume Encyclopedia of Optimization (a second enlarged edition is coming out in
Summer 2008).

W. Hager is the editor in chief of Journal of Computational Optimization and Applications (COAP).

QUANTITATIVE FINANCE PROGRAM AT UF:

Organizer and director of the interdisciplinary Quantitative Finance Ph.D. program involving the de-
partments of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Mathematics, Statistics and Finance, Insurance, and Real
Estate of the Business School. This interdisciplinary Ph.D. program trains students for academic and research
positions in the quantitative finance and risk management areas. It is focused on teaching and research, de-
sign, development, and implementation of new financial and risk management products, processes, strategies,
and systems to meet the demands of various institutions, corporations, governments, and households. For a
detailed description of the program see the following website: http://www.ise.ufl.edu/rmfe/co-major.html.
