Objectives of the Course: to provide a formal quantitative approach to problem solving; to give a n i n tuition for managerial situations where a quantitative approach is appropriate; to introduce some widely used quantitative models; to introduce software for solving such models. To accomplish these objectives we provide: background in linear algebra and nonlinear optimization; description of the linear programming model, decision theory, etc.; explanation of the mathematical ideas behind… 
Risk of Bankruptcy, Its Determinants and Models
In this paper, the following research problem was addressed: Is DEA (Data Envelopment Analysis) method a suitable alternative to Altman model in predicting the risk of bankruptcy? Based on the
Significance of Efficiency for Sustainable Development :A Practice of Data Envelopment Analysis on Textile Sector
Resources in the nature are limited and mankind has to use these resources economically or otherwise next generations might have difficulty in surviving. That is why today‘s decision makers has to
Routing Searching Algorithm for Combined Freight Transport Trips in South East Europe Region
In this chapter, the authors propose a mixed integer linear programming model (MILP) to address the shortest path problem when trans-shipments exist on combined freight transport operations. The
DEA investment strategy in the Brazilian stock market
This paper presents a multi-period investment strategy using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) in the Brazilian stock market. Results show that the returns based on the DEA strategy were superior to
Planejamento e Otimização de Redes Ópticas

Interior Point Methods with Adversarial Networks
We present a new methodology, called IPMAN, that combines interior point methods and generative adversarial networks to solve constrained optimization problems with feasible sets that are non-convex
The Effectiveness of the E-Learning Applications: Assessment of the Service Quality Using Binominal Logistic Regression.
The current criticism of higher education is that the education offered does not match the needs of practice. In terms of competitiveness, Germany is about the forefront in Europe, and logically the
