Computational and Stochastic Optimization Laboratory

The Computational and Stochastic Optimization Laboratory is interested in multi-stage formulations and solution methods for mixed integer programming under uncertainty, and its applications in production planning, supply chain management, and power grid optimization. Currently, CSO is working on research topics in the following three areas:

  • Multi-stage Mixed Integer Programming under Uncertainty: Study reformulations, polyhedral aspects, and algorithms for large-scale multi-stage stochastic and robust integer programs, and its application in production planning. Topics include strong formulations and computational complexity analysis for stochastic lot-sizing problems, cutting planes for multi-stage stochastic integer programs, and polyhedral studies for multi-stage robust integer programs.
  • Logistics and Supply Chain Management: Develop policies, algorithms and decision support systems for industrial companies. Topics include inventory accuracy management, lead-time hedging, and container terminal operations.
  • Power System Analysis: Study power grid system analysis and optimization problems with the consideration of renewable energy (e.g., wind, solar and etc) output uncertainty. Develop efficient policies for power system operators with the objective of minimizing total cost, while maintaining the stability of the power grid system, and incorporate the new features provided by the smart grid system to further improve the system efficiency.

CSO is also dedicated to promote optimization under uncertainty as an efficient approach to solve a wide range of real-time decision making problems and stimulate student interest in this area.

    What is this view?

    You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
    This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
