About

Who we are...

Our group consists of around 30 members from RMIT, Federation University and Swinburne University of Technology.

The members of our optimisation group actively collaborate with other Australian research centres focussed on optimisation and computation, in particular Computer-Assisted Research Mathematics and its Applications (CARMA) at the University of Newcastle and Centre for Informatics and Applied Optimization (CIAO) at Federation University Australia. We also have extended overseas collaborations, in particular in the US and in Europe.

RMIT Optimisation Group holds frequent research meetings (with connection available to external participants via Visimeet). We also organise optimisation workshops and post all materials related to the meetings on our web page. Information about our past activities is available in our archives.

Please send an email to rmitopt(at)rmit.edu.au if you have questions regarding our activities or if you are interested in joining us.

What we do...

Optimisation has been one of the most active domains of modern mathematical research for over a century. It encompasses a broad panorama of research agendas from the foundations of modern mathematical analysis and computation, to development of modelling and numerical optimisation tools used within industry today to solve challenging large scale problems with speed and reliability.

Modern computational tools require fundamental theoretical developments both of a mathematical nature and from an algorithmic and complexity view point. Optimisation bridges applied mathematics, modelling and computing science. The Optimisation group is engaged the development of fundamental mathematical theory for the creation of new optimisation techniques for the solution of challenging optimisation problems.

We are actively engaged in the international efforts directed at the solution of fundamental challenges faced by the optimisation community. We are also committed to the promotion and dissemination of new knowledge via engagement with the local Australian mathematical community and the promotion of collaborations with industry and government organisations.
