Optimal Resource Allocation using Python (#36)

Description

Optimal Resource Allocation using Python

Presented by Ryan J O'Neil

A brief introduction to modeling and solving resource allocation and scheduling problems using Python and SCIP.

At times a programmer is faced with difficult, possibly NP-Hard, optimization problems such as scheduling or assignment. Sophisticated techniques exist for modeling and solving these sorts of problems which are well implemented in optimization solvers. This talk introduces some of these techniques using the ZIB Optimization Suite and its new Python interface.
