Last 13th November, our partner Juan Francisco Rodríguez Herrera defended his PhD thesis entitled High Performance Computing in Deterministic Global Optimization. It is the result of his research along his period as an FPU student.
It studies and analizes some key aspects regarding deterministic methods for solving global optimization problems by using parallel computing. Some operative research problems are particularly studied. The main goal is to take full benefit from modern super-computers. The thesis is focused on two deterministic and well-known global optimization methods: Branch & Bound and Dynamic Programming.
This thesis is available in the thesis section to everyone who is interested at it.
