Optimisation is the science of finding the best solution amongst many feasible alternatives for general decision making problems, from parameter estimation and model fitting, to experiment design, and to more advanced uses, such as optimising processes and plant flow sheets, and more. There is no doubt that optimisation theory can be very difficult to grasp if looked at the level a mathematician would use to develop a mathematical proof. However, Dr Vassiliadis will present optimisation as an indispensable tool in modern engineering science needed to formulate appropriate models. There will be no complex mathematics, but some equations will be used: basic algebra, basic calculus and a lot of common sense! Most of the ideas presented will be based on Chemical Engineering applications. This 2-part presentation is also suited to prospect researchers. Academics and students from other University Departments are welcome.
