Language:  English 
Type of course:  elective courses 
Prerequisites (description):  Student have to know basic notions from Linear algebra and Mathematical Analysis 
Short description: 
In this course students learn about mathematical models of decision and linoptimization problems, linear programming, nonlinear programming, transportation problem and its generalizations, computer methods of finding optimal solutions, discrete programming, mulicriterial programming and programming under noncertain conditions. After classes they achieve the competence of building models and solving optimization problems including computer programming and interpretation of obtained results.
