The project aims to develop 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.
An international team of researchers in Cardiff University, UC Davis and TU Berlin are currently working on this theme.You will join this research network.
Under supervision of Dr Aliev and Dr Oertel you 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.
