Chair of Numerical Optimization

CHAIR OF Numerical Optimization

Andreas Fischer cv

The research and teaching activities at the Chair of Numerical Optimization focus on the design, analysis, and application of efficient numerical methods for several classes of optimization problems. They include smooth nonlinear constrained optimization, complementarity problems and variational inequalities, related nonsmooth and degenerate problems, problems in discrete optimization, in particular problems of cutting and packing, optimization tasks in machine learning, and diverse applications.

According to these research areas there is a number of scientific collaborations and contacs to partners at the TU Dresden, to research institutes and companies in Germany, and to research groups in many countries.
