Recherche Profile

The LIPN (http://www-lipn.univ-paris13.fr/) wishes to reinforce
one of its 5 teams by recruiting a full professor. The teams are:
* Machine Learning & Applications (A3)
* Algorithms and Combinatorial Optimization (AOC)
* Combinatorial, Algorithmic and Interactions (CALIN)
* Logic, Calculation and Reasoning (LCR)
* Knowledge Management and Natural Language (RCLN)

OC group of LIPN
Contact : Roberto Wolfler Calvo, wolfler@lipn.univ-paris13.fr

The Combinatorial Optimization group (OC) of the AOC team (Algorithms
and Combinatorial Optimization) undertakes both fundamental theoretical
researches and industrial applications in Integer Programming and
Combinatorial Optimization. It consists today of a professor emeritus,
two full professors and six associate professors. The group handles the
traditional and strongly complementary approaches of Combinatorial
Optimization which are: mathematical programming, complexity, modeling,
graph theory, exact methods and metaheuristics. Research is articulated
around three axes:
- the definition of innovative solution methods in mathematical
programming (re-optimization, reformulation);
- the study of structural properties of the problems (decompositions and
relaxations, polyedral structure, approximation algorithms);
- the developement of exact and approximate methods for solving
real-life problems (as for example: planning and scheduling of
resources, logistics and vehicles routing, multimodal transport, design
of networks).

The group has a particular expertise in the development of mathematical
programming methods for the solution of very large scale problems. More
recently, it has developed original research axes within the framework
of collaborations with other fields such as data mining and mathematics.

Key words: combinatorial optimization, discrete applied mathematics,
integer programming, graph theory, polyhedral approaches, approximation,
