Industrial Mathematics Seminar Launched

Friday, June 8, 2012

In collaboration with the DFG Research Center Mathematics for Key Technologies, QFL Researchers launched the new MATHEON Industrial Mathematics Seminar Series.

The first seminar takes place Thursday, June 14th at 17:00 Uhr at TU Berlin, Department of Mathematics (Room MA 041). The speaker is Ivo Nowak (Lufthansa Systems AG).

Title Robust Airline Planning:

Abstract Since airline schedules of today have often little slack and limited recovery opportunities, flights are frequently disrupted leading to significant additional recovery costs and lower passenger punctuality.Recent approaches in robust optimization make it possible to reduce the impact of flight disruptions. A main difficultly in applying these techniques to a real-world problem is to find an appropriate recovery model under uncertainty. In this talk we discuss opportunities and challenges in robust airline planning.
