Summary on Grant Application Form
The proposed project is for the development of the methodology, algorithms, models and software for decision support. It uses logic programming technology to provide intelligent front-end specification of frequently encountered complex decision models in management, engineering design and finance. Using a translation, the problem is acst into integer linear (LP) and quadratic programming (QP) framework. Algorithms are proposed for solving efficiently the large scale LP and QP problems and their integer programming extensions. To solve realistic problems in these areas within acceptable time the parallel version of these algorithms will be worked out and implmented. Multiple objective optimisation models and uncertainty are common decision models and require the technology developed above, used in conjunction with quadratic optimisation, mean-variance and scenario analysis. The project will implement an integrated system that addresses these common concerns in decision making that will be applicable to a wide range of areas.
