Mathematical programming

(INF580 -- Programmation Mathématique)

DIX (LIX), École Polytechnique

2nd trimester 2016/2017 (jan-mar)


Teaching Material



  January: 4-6, 11-13, 18, 25-27
  February: 1-3, 8-10, 22-24
  March: 1-3, 8-10, 15

Every "teaching slot" will be composed by 2h lectures (wed 1045-1245) in and 2h of computer practice (fri 14-16 and 1615-1815) in PC37: bring your laptops!

The exam will consist either of an oral examination where I will ask you questions about the course material, or of the presentation of a project about a topic in mathematical programming, with possibly also a reduced part of oral examination. Projects can be conducted in pairs (at most), but the reduced oral exam will have to be given individually.
