Xinan Yang
Senior Lecturer, Department of Mathematical Sciences
Research interests: Stochastic Optimization and its applications in various fields,mainly concerned aboutbut not restricted to Telecommunications, Inventory Control, Revenue Management and Energy industry. Major methodologies that have been used/investigated are Dynamic Programming (DP) and Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP). Exact and heuristic solution methods for mixed integer linear programming problems are alsoinvestigated butare to my secondary interest at the moment.
