MATH 441 Schedule of Presentations, Fall 2017
This page concerns MATH 441Math Modeling: Discrete Optimization
ProblemsSection 101.
Scheduling Method 
Groups were assigned a random letter; tags were given for project names;
13 groups emailed me preferences for Bins 19 (each bin corresponds to
a presentation date).
Here is the data (project names deleted).
This gawk script generated this
this Gurobistyle *.lp file (I added a .txt
extension to it).
We examined the solution in class, both to this file (max three per class)
and to another (max two per class).
So far 13 groups have been scheduled
as follows.
The utility function used in the above *.lp file has certain desirable
properties. It DOES NOT mean that your favourite slot gives you exactly
"9 times more utility" than your least favourite slot.
It does mean that if you use this utility function, the resulting
schedule has a lot of reasonable properties.
