Class info


  • Articles for the class project
  • For HW1, use articles from the latest reincarnations of ATMSeminar, ICRAT and SID (SID is every year; ATMSeminar and ICRAT alternate -- the former is in odd years, the latter is in evern). 
    That is, use
    • previous-year SID;
    • in even years: 
      • ATMSeminar from previous year 
      • ICRAT from 2 years back for TNFL10 (taught in Spring)
      • this-year ICRAT  for TNFL11 (taught in Fall);
    • in odd years: 
      • ICRAT from previous year
      • ATMSeminar from 2 years back for TNFL10 (taught in Spring)
      • this-year ATMSemniar for TNFL11 (taught in Fall)
  • Further material: Optimization problems glossary and a useful resource at KTH: Compendium of (hard) optimization problems


All assignments are due beginning of class on the due date. Paper or email submission are both fine (please use .pdf for email submissions).
The assignments are done in groups; please split into the groups yourself (discuss with the instructor if you cannot do it yourself).
