Welcome to the Division of Optimization

To optimize is to find the best possible solution to a problem. Optimization is a mathematical science and is based on mathematical models that define what is good/bad and what is feasible/infeasible. The best solution to such a model is found with the help of efficient solutions methods, based on mathematical algorithms and efficient implementations. This way one can solve real life problems within many different areas, such as telecommunication, forestry, railway, finance, transportation, production etc.
