You will derive recommendations, both for optimised MINO applications and for the effectiveness of the novel methodologies.

Personally, you will belong to a new generation of highly-skilled researchers that will strengthen Europe's human capital base in R&I in the fast growing field of mathematical optimisation. Your ESR research project will be pursued in joint supervision between experienced practitioners from leading European industries and leading optimisation experts, covering a wide range of scientific fields.

Project 5: Benders Decomposition for Convex Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Optimisation
Host institution: University of Bologna, Italy
Supervisors: Michele Monaci, Enrico Malaguti
Decomposition methods, such as Benders and Dantzing-Wolfe decompositions, are one of the common algorithmic techniques to solve large-scale linear and mixed-integer linear optimisation problems. In particular, Benders decomposition is typically the tool of choice for the solution of two stage stochastic optimisation problems, arising in a very large number of applications characterized by some uncertainty in the data (e.g., demand forecasts, prices, etc.). However, there is little literature and no generic (i.e., not problem tailored) approach to apply these decomposition techniques in the context of mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation.

Our objective is to study possible extensions of decomposition methods such as Benders and Dantzig-Wolfe to the solution of mixed-integer nonlinear optimisation problems. Within the project, the ESR will work on management applications where resources need to be taken into account in a stochastic fashion, as it happens, in the energy industry and in transportation management and scheduling.

Expected Results: Library of applications for MINO featuring a decomposition structure (with emphasis on stochastic optimisation), extension of Benders/Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition to convex mixed-integer optimisation problems with quadratic constraints and/or objective, prototypical software implementations and their validation (see WP3), extensions to more general nonlinear problems.

Hosting Institution: UNIBO is the second largest University in Italy and one of the most active in research and technology transfer. It stands among the most important institutions of higher education in EU with 87,000 enrolled students, 2,857 Academic staff, 1,198 post- docs and 1,606 PhDs.

This project will be hosted by the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering "Guglielmo Marconi” (DEI). The DEI department consists of around 120 scientists, whose research and education activities cover the following fields of Industrial and Information Engineering: Automation, Bioengineering, Electric Drives and Systems, Electrical and Electronic Measurements, Electrical Engineering, Electromagnetic Fields, Electronics, Operations Research and Telecommunications. DEI offers one Undergradlate and three gradlate international programmes taught in English, as well as five Undergradlate and six graduate programmes taught in Italian. The Department offers also four international Ph.D. programmes. The Operations Research group at DEI has an internationally-recognized visibility in the design and implementation of models and algorithms for mathematical programming optimization problems, as witnessed by the record of publications of the members of the group. The group has also been involved in many industrial projects arising from applications in transportation, logistics, energy production, telecommunications and engineering.
