Competencies / intended learning achievements
Upon successful completion of the module, the students have studied and understand different algorithms and methods to solve integer optimization problems. They have learnt to model real world economic, technical and/or physical problems as integer optimization problems by using mathematical tools. They are able to critically assess the applicability and limitations of the algorithms. They will understand the proofs presented in the lecture and are able to comprehend and explain them.
By completing the given exercises, the students have developed a skilled, precise and independent handling of the terms, propositions and techniques taught in the lecture. In addition, they have learnt how to applythese techniques to new problems, analyze them and develop solution strategies independently or by team work.
