Network Optimization and Control

Location: PHO 415
Associated faculty: Cassandras, Paschalidis

Research deals with fundamental aspects of optimizing the design and operation of networks as well as designing control algorithms to regulate their operation. Networks are pervasive in a variety of application domains, from computer, communication, and sensor networks to supply chains, distribution networks, and biological networks like protein interaction and metabolic networks. Recent research topics include transmission scheduling in wireless networks, optimal deployment of networks of mobile agents, network routing, network anomaly detection, pricing and resource allocation, network simulation, intelligent warehouse management, protein docking, and optimization of metabolic networks.
