The Group for Mathematical Methods of Operations Research investigates mathematical programming problems theoretically as well as numerically. The focus is on continuous optimization problems, but also mixed-integer nonlinear problems are studied. The research topics are often motivated by problems from the engineering sciences or from work on industrial projects.

The main research topics are currently the theory of vector and set optimization, numerical methods for vector and set optimization, and thus also of multiobjective optimization, global optimization such as mixed-integer optimization, and optimization problems in applications.
