Operational research focuses on the basic rules that how human beings use and operate different resources, in order to optimize the profits of limited resources. As a domain about optimization and decision making, operational research plays an important role in economics, science and technology, industry, management, military, etc., and thus highly recognized by higher education systems all over the world. The course will introduce linear programming, transportation, integer programming, graph and network analysis, dynamic programming, decision analysis, game theory, forecasting, optimization, and these contents may increase students` interests on further study in the domain of operational research.
The course presents the fundamental ideas and methods used in operational research, which are expected to lead students to use them when facing various real world problems, to determine objects, establish schemes, build models, and obtain solutions, so that they can survive in drastic competitions of this information era.
