Computational and Intelligent Mathematics

This research stream applies optimisation methods and approaches to model and solve real-world problems in machine learning, artificial intelligence, bioinformatics and finance.

The stream focuses on research in numerical optimisation, and in particular, on numerical non-smooth and global optimisation.

Special emphasis is placed on modelling water and power distribution systems using optimisation approaches and developing new algorithms to optimise large water and power distribution systems.
