Carlo Mannino: Mathematical optimization models for traffic management systems

Carlo Mannino (SINTEF and Department of Mathematics, University of Oslo) will give a talk on February 26th at 14:15 in the Erling Sverdrups plass, Niels Henrik Abels hus, 8th floor.

Carlo Mannino is Senior Research Scientist at SINTEF and Professor II at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Oslo.

Title: Mathematical optimization models for traffic management systems


In the past years, at SINTEF we developed advanced management systems for rail- and air- traffic control. 
The purpose is to schedule vehicles in real-time in order to control the movements, prevent conflicts in the use of the transport network and minimize delays and knock-on effects.
We introduce a basic optimization model (also shared with other relevant applications in industrial processing), which makes use of discrete-event graphs. We then show how this central model is related to very basic combinatorial optimization concepts, such as shortest path trees, linear programming and duality.
