Aim of the course and learning outcomes:
The aim of the course is to present advanced mathematical methods of operational research which can be directly used as a managerial decision making support tool. This course results from Economic Mathematical Methods and continues with more sophisticated parts of Operations Research. On the end of this course students should have general knowledge of intermediate Operations research methods. Part of this course is also focused on practical applications and use of specific software.
