Research Projects in Mathematical Optimization

This web page gives a brief overview over current and past research projects at Institute of Mathematical Optimization.

Non-smooth Methods for Complementarity Formulations of Switched Advection-Diffusion Processes

efficient numerical methods for optimization of advection- diffusion processes described by large-scale instationary switched PDAEs with application to optimal operation of the transient behaviour of Rankine cycles for energy recovery.

Researchers: Prof. Kirches, with Prof. Sager (OVGU Magdeburg), Prof. Leyffer (Argonne National Laboratory, IL, USA)
Funding: Priority Programme 1962 of Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)
Duration: Oct 2016 - Sep 2019

MoPhaPro - Model-based Optimization of Pharmaceutical Processes

Providing effective, safe and affordable medication is a highly relevant and society-wide effort. MoPhaPro develops new mathematical methods to replace empirical procedures in developing and producing medications by systematic mathematical modeling of the underlying pharmaceutical process, by fast and reliable numerical simulation of process models. By making use of model-based optimization, this project help to improve identification and development aspects of the production cycle and makes highly effective medication safer, more available, and more affordable.

Researchers: Prof. Kirches, with Prof. Bock, Prof. Kostina, Dr. Potschka (all Heidelberg University)
Funding: German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF)
Duration: Dec 2016 - Nov 2019


Completed Projects

TEAM - Tomorrow's Elastic Adaptive Mobility

TEAM stands for Tomorrow’s Elastic Adaptive Mobility. It turns static into elastic mobility by joining drivers, travellers and infrastructure operators together into one collaborative network. Thereby TEAM explicitly takes into account the needs and constraints of all participants and the network itself.

Researchers: Prof. Stiller, with ...
Funding: European Union within the Seventh Framework Programme (grant agreement no 318621)
Duration: Nov 2012 - Oct 2016

RobuNet - Robustes Netzwerkdesign für sehr große Logistiknetzwerke

Location and touring decisions for large scale logistics networks under uncertain input data.

Researchers: Prof. Stiller, with ...
Funding: European fund for regional development (EFRE), Investment Bank Berlin (IBB).
Duration: Aug 2012 - May 2015
