Department: Applied Mathematics
Duration: 4 y        Workload: 100%
Duties: Large-scale optimization problems show up in many domains, such as engineering, scheduling, economics, but also, e.g., in the sciences. Unfortunately, finding optimal solutions within reasonable time is often impossible because the problems that have to be solved are computationally intractable. Because of this, optimization problems are nowadays often attacked using ad-hoc heuristics. Many such heuristics show a remarkable performance, but their theoretical (worst-case) performance is poor. In order to explain the performance of heuristics, probabilistic analysis is the method of choice, where performance is analyzed with respect to random instances. Our goal is to develop and apply a framework for random metric spaces
Minimum Requirements: The successful candidate should have a Master's degree in Mathematics, Computer Science, or a related field. A solid background in Discrete Optimization, Theoretical Computer Science, or the Analysis of Algorithms is highly appreciated but not a must as the candidate will be given the opportunity to follow courses in the LNMB PhD program during her/his first year
