3 Primary areas of interest Nonlinear multiobjective optimizationMultiple criteria decision makingMathematical programmingGlobal optimization and evolutionary algorithmsHybrid approachesSoftware development incl. usabilityIndustrial applications
4 Our Research Solving complex problems – supporting decision making ApplicationsSoftwareMethodsTheorySolving complex problems – supporting decision makingComputational efficiencyCognitive validityTypically multiple objectivesInteractive methodsMethod developmentMethods generic, i.e., application independentMany different approachesMathematical programming with strong theoretical backgroundEvolutionary approaches and other metaheuristics and heuristicsApplication-specific tailoring also neededApplication fields

6 Some Outcomes http://nimbus.it.jyu.fi/ NIMBUS method + software (2 versions)WWW-NIMBUS; first multiobjective optimization method operating via Internet since 1995IND-NIMBUS for industrial problemsOther methodsInteractive (e.g. Pareto Navigator, Nautilus)Hybrids8 PhD thesesBooks, journal articles, conference articles, working papers/reports
7 Postprosessing, Implement. MissionPhenomenon/ApplicationSpread understanding about potential of optimization and multiobjective optimizationModelling + simulation not enough alone!Operations research is a scientific approach to decision makingBeauty of computational science and optimization often remains hidden and invisibleMeaning of application-independent methods and approachesGet inspiration from real applications to method and theory development as well as software designFoster collaboration between users and researchersActive publishing, see e.g.New approaches -> new perspectives -> new kinds of solutionsMathematicalmodelNumericalmodelVali-dationComputationalmodelSimulation withcomputersOptimizationPostprosessing, Implement.
