Interger Optimisation

An international team of our researchers, UC Davis, and TU Berlin are currently developing novel algebraic and geometric methods that can be successfully applied to study integer optimisation problems, with a special focus on sparsity of solutions in context of (linear or nonlinear) integer optimisation.

You will join this research network, under supervision of Dr Aliev and Dr Oertel. They will use the cutting-edge algebraic and geometric techniques of mathematical optimisation that take their origin in modern discrete geometry, number theory and commutative geometry.

You will have an excellent opportunity for collaboration with researchers from UC Davis discrete mathematics network and MATHEON network (TU Berlin).

The proposed work will also involve the use of the state of the art software for computations with polyhedra (LattE) developed in UC Davis.

We are interested in pursuing this project and welcome applications if you are self-funded or have funding from other sources, including government sponsorships or your employer.

Please contact the supervisor when you want to pursue this project, citing the project title in your email, or find out more about our PhD programme in Mathematics.
