Principles of Operational Research II


Course No.S070105ZJ002

Course CategoryProfessional Basic Course


PrerequisitesAdvanced Mathematics, Linear Algebra, Probability and Statistics.

Aims & Requirements

This is a basic course for graduate students majoring various mathematical sciences, while could also serve as an elective for students of management sciences. Although Operational Research is a broad subject and has many branches, this course concerns mainly the mathematical background of stochastic models. After taken this course, students are expected to acquaint the basic concepts and techniques of stochastic models in Operational Research. We also hope that, through the study of some cases, students can understand the essence of stochastic models in Operational Research, and can lay the foundation for further study in various areas of Operational Research.
