INFORMS Student Chapter has organized a seminar. Prof. Jong-Shi Pang from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will speak on "Four Modeling Paradigms in Mathematical Programming".

ABSTRACT:

"We discuss four modeling paradigms in mathematical programming that extends beyond the classical notion of optimization. These paradigms are competition, dynamics, hierarchy, and inverse. We discuss how mathematical programming can contribute to each of these topics, drawing applications from contemporary systems engineering applications such as in communication, electricity markets, transportation, and data-driven modeling."
