Institute for Numerical and Applied Mathematics - Research Group Optimization

Welcome to the homepage of the Research Group Optimization!



Due to the new position of Prof. Dr. Anita Schöbel at the TU Kaiserslautern, this working group is now part of the optimization research group in Kaiserslautern. For further information, please see their homepage.

The studies of our research group focus on discrete optimization.

Our main topics in the moment are the development of robustness concepts and algorithms, especially for multi-criteria optimization, see [Ehrgott, Ide, Schöbel (2014)] and [Ide, Schöbel (2016)], integrated optimization of several planning steps, see FOR2083 and the placing of multidimensional structures in location theory, see [Schöbel (2015)].


We are considering applications in public transport planning within the DFG research unit on integrated planning in public transport and the SWZ-project ASimOV. Additionally, our research group is participating in the research training group GK2088.

For students alongside basic lectures also advanced courses in discrete optimization are taught. Furthermore, the interdisciplinary project PILZ took place for the seventh time. In addition, numerous projects to improve mathematics as a subsidiary subject were conducted as well as support to the start of new students at the university as part of Campus QPLUS.
