Talk by Pierre-Louis Poirion: «Algorithms and applications for a class of bilevel MILPs»

Speaker: Pierre-Louis Poirion
Location: Room Henri Poincaré, Alan Turing building
Date: Fri, 5 Apr 2019, 14:00-15:00

Pierre-Louis Poirion, who used to be a postdoc in the SYSMO team (now DASCIM), and is now at RIKEN Institute Tokyo, is coming to visit for a couple of weeks, partly supported by the H2020 MINOA project. He is going to give two seminars, both at 14:30 in Salle Philippe Flajolet (2nd floor, left side of the Turing building). The first seminar is entitled Algorithms and applications for a class of bilevel MILPs.

Abstract: We present a new cut generation algorithm to solve a class of bilevel mixed-integer linear programs where we allow integer variables in the lower level optimization problem. We then apply our methods to the optimal placement of measurement devices in an electrical network.
