Research Topics

My research interests include Modelling, Optimization-Operations Research, Numerical Analysis and Computer Science with a strong emphasis on modelling and numerical solution of real world large-scale problems in different fields of Applied Sciences by optimization approaches. Since 1992 my main works are dedicated to:


  • Nonconvex programming and global optimization - local and global approaches, DC programming: theory, algorithms and applications in various areas of applied sciences - communication systems, transport-logistics, production management, finance, bioinformatics, computer security, image processing and computer vision, identification of materials, manufacturing.


  • Combinatorial Optimization and its applications in complex industrial systems.


  • Optimization in Machine Learning and Data mining.
