Optimisation

Optimisation is about finding the "best" way to do a task, subject to any restrictions. Research in optimisation includes model development, analysis, numerical techniques and applications.

Research Interests

  • Nonlinear programming
  • Nonsmooth analysis and optimisation
  • Global optimisation
  • Applied nonlinear functional analysis
  • Semidefinite programming
  • Optimal control for cancer chemotherapy
  • Numerical methods for nonsmooth problems
  • Integer programming
  • Stochastic programming
  • Robust optimisation
  • Application of optimisation techniques to:
  • Approximation; biology; finance; engineering; statistics; data mining; open pit mining; minimise aircraft delays; efficiently recover disrupted airline schedules; schedule single track rail freight; scheduling port operations.
