Combinatorial optimization and polyhedral theory.
Modeling using linear and nonlinear integer programs.
Applications to the solution of practical problems in the areas of sustainability, environment, logistics, fisheries, agriculture, engineering and production, among others.
“We cannot talk about the generation of scientific knowledge without having spaces for debating about it. That is why the importance of this school, to develop friendships with future research networks to generate science in Ecuador “said Jaime Medina, Undersecretary of Scientific Research at Senescyt.
