Outline of Lectures:
This course is focused on the optimization problems that arise in network communications design and planning. First the mathematical techniques involved in constrained optimization are introduced. Then, a taxonomy of network planning problems is reviewed. Representative examples are provided and modeled as constrained optimization problems. After that, algorithm and problem complexity classification is introduced, next to an evaluation of complexity issues in constrained optimization problems. Finally, a section introducing graph theory as a feasible approach for network optimization is included.
The seminar will be conducted in English
