Today all PhD students of the University of Florence who got their degree in the last year participated to the official ceremony. We are proud of our Alessandro, who received the degree from the Rector prof. Luigi Dei. Here is
First presentation today by a member of our GOL team at the Mathematical Programming conference in Bordeaux, a huge scientific meeting with more than 1550 presentations! Tommaso presented his research on sparse multiobjective optimization: a fantastic presentation, perfect in timing,
The www.packomania.com site has certified that 3 (out of our 5 submissions) of new putative optima are indeed improvements. The other two had already been discovered but not yet published. From the official web site for sphere packing: 29-Jun-2018: Three
On June 10th, 2018, Repubblica has published a short news on an interesting application of Artificial Intelligence to soccer developed in our lab.
We are performing experiments with a new global optimization algorithm based on clustering. While experimenting on the sphere packing problem (the problem of placing N identical, non overlapping, spheres of maximum radius inside the unit cube) we discovered 5 new
Today my master course on “Models and Algorithms for Organization and Management” has finished. I have had a very good class, with quite a lot of students – it has been a great satisfaction for me. But, differently from previous
In the same day, two different papers appeared on line. One is a paper devoted to scheduling a sport tournament, publisehd on INFORMS Interfaces: https://doi.org/10.1287/inte.2017.0932 “Scheduling the Italian National Volleyball Tournament”, by Guido Cocchi, Alessandro Galligari, Federica Picca Nicolino, Veronica Piccialli, myself and
This morning I gave my third (and last for 2018) lecture in the Pianeta Galileo series at the Istituto Dagomari in Prato. Again, exactly as in my previous two experiences, it has been an exciting morning for me. The audience
We are proud to announce that two of our PhD students defended their thesis today, with great success. For both of them the commission proposed not only the nomination as PhD’s but also the “cum laude” attribute. All the GOL
We just received the acceptance notice from jcp https://aip.scitation.org/journal/jcp Of course we (francesco, luca and myself) had at least a tiny hope to succeed when we decided to submit our paper on clustering optimization for atomic clusters to that journal .
