Methods, Algorithms for Operations REsearch

The members of MAORE are using the tools of combinatorial optimization, graph theory, mathematical programming, and constraint programming to solve discrete optimization problems exactly or approximately. Our main application fields are:

  • Networks (sensors, IoT, optical)
  • Logistics and transportation (routing, inventory)
  • Energy (production, distribution)
  • Numerical agriculture

Our recent industrial collaborations involve, for instance, Orange, Schneider, Total, and Teads.
