Turku Optimization Group (TOpGroup )


The mathematical and computational tools in optimization are used more frequently these days, as they provide efficient tools with negligible costs for many industries in the race for greater profits, better efficiency and/or smaller costs.
The optimization team does research in both modeling and implementation of practical problems from industry, and, further development of algorithms. The following areas of optimization are at focus:
  • nonsmooth optimization
  • multiobjective optimization
  • mixed-integer nonlinear programmin (MINLP)
  • global optimization
  • sensitivity analysis and robust optimization
  • combinatorial optimization
  • parameterization and regularization techniques
  • scheduling, time-tabling, resource allocation, assignment
  • multiobjective heuristics and evolutionary optimization
The group participates in three graduate schools:
