Integer Optimization

Ksenia Bestuzheva

We develop theory and solution methodologies for linear and nonlinear mixed-integer optimization programs (MIPs). Our primary focus lies in enhancing the efficiency of integer and spatial branch-and-bound algorithms, which provide a general-purpose approach to finding provable global optima and coordinate within one framework components such as relaxations, cutting planes, primal heuristics, presolving procedures, and other solving techniques. Our group works on all these aspects and their interaction within the constraint integer programming solver SCIP. We also work on algorithms combining satisfiability and MIP techniques such as conflict analysis and domain propagation; on exact MIP and linear programming, guaranteeing that solutions are not invalidated by floating-point arithmetic errors; and on polynomial optimization problems.
