Research

Research interests

My main research interest is the analysis, development, implementation and testing of solution approaches for large-scale structured optimization problems at the interface between continuous and combinatorial optimization, with emphasis on (re)formulation techniques to expose and exploit valuable structural properties, and their real-life application in several fields (energy, transportation, telecommunications, ...) I'm also interested in the numerical analysis, computer science, artificial intelligence and machine learning issues arising within these solution approaches and, vice-versa, in the use of mathematical programming techniques in these disciplines.

I always try to combine three different aspects: methodology, applications and implementation. This is necessary, in that the development of a single general solution method may result in improved performances in several different applications. For instance, the theoretical results of [A7, A14, A25, A35, A55] have applications in such diverse fields as network optimization [A5, A9, A22], scheduling problems for electrical generators [C1, C2, C4, A10, A21, A56] or vehicles and crews [N1, A23, A64], and Max-Cut problems [A13]. On the other hand, investigation on a specific application often motivates novel methodological developments; this has been the case e.g. for the results in [A17], which have been originally motivated by the study of scheduling problems in electrical power production, but that have later found very different applications [A45, A43, A42, A30, A18, C5]. Finally, the significance of any methodological or applicative contribution can be vastly increased if efficient and well-engineered software implementing the idea is made available to potentially interested users in the academia and in industry. This is especially true for the development of sophisticated algorithmic schemes, whose implementation is typically far from trivial. Because of this, I've taken specific care in developing well-engineered and easy-to-use software packages, which have been made available under different open source licenses [A39]. I lead the implementation effort for 8 main software projects, for a total of 16 software packages, which can be downloaded from http://www.di.unipi.it/optimize/Software/; these represent a nontrivial fraction of all open source optimization projects ever developed in Italy. For the same reasons I also developed or collected and made available at http://www.di.unipi.it/optimize/Data/ almost 30 different data sets for 6 different classes of optimization problems (the site is in the top 10 Google hits for the keyword "multicommodity flow instances" since several years).
I like in particular to thread across boundaries of different fields such as numerical analysis, diverse aspects of mathematical programming, and computer science. For instance, applying nonlinear techniques to discrete problems [A1, A5, A10, A13, A15, A18, A23, A30] and vice-versa [A16, A17, B4], investigating numerical analysis aspects of optimization algorithms [A6, A12] and vice-versa [A44, A47, A19], applying parallel programming techniques to the solution of optimization poblems [A9, B2], applying optimization techniques to algorithm design issues [A40, A65], or working in the interplay between mathematical programming, artificial intelligence and machine learning [B5, B6, B14, B15]. This is due to my profound belief in the need of continuously adapting the research tools to the needs of the problem at hand, if necessary challenging the limits and the fences that–often surreptitiously–divide disciplines.

From the methodological standpoint, the main algorithmic techniques that I have investigated are:

From the applicative standpoint, I have mainly investigated the following problems:

When appropriate, I have also investigated other problems and methodologies. A more in-depth description of my research can be found at www.di.unipi.it/~frangio/research.html.

Benedikt Bienhüls TBD current Doctorate in Computer Science, University of Pisa
Gabriele Iommazzo Optimizing to Learn to Optimize current Doctorate in Computer Science, University of Pisa
Kostas Tavlaridis-Gyparakis Decomposition Techniques for Large-Scale Energy Optimization Problems 2018 Doctorate in Computer Science, University of Pisa
Luis Pèrez Sànchez Artificial Intelligence Techniques for Automatic Reformulation and Solution of Structured Mathematical Models 2010 Doctorate in Computer Science, University of Pisa
Fausto Pascali Chance Constrained Network Design 2009 Doctorate in Mathematics for Economy, University of Pisa
Qinghua Zhang Outer Approximation Algorithms for DC Programs and Beyond 2008 Doctorate in Mathematics, University of Pisa

I've been supervisor of 11 Master Theses in Computer Science and 9 Master Theses in Mathematics at the University of Pisa, one Master Thesis Electrical Engineering at the University of Bari (that won the AIRO Prize in 2007), one Master Thesis in Mathematics at the University of Insubria, and one Master Thesis in Mathematics at the University of Bologna. I have supervised 14 dissertations for undergrad diplomas of the university of Pisa (Computer Science and Mathematics); one of them won the AIRO Prize in 2006. I've collaborated to the supervision of many other Ph.D. and Master Theses. I've been external advisor for nine Ph.D. Theses abroad (Canada, Spain, Portugal, France, and UK) and two Italian ones.

Since 1999 I'm one of the main contributors to the "Lecture Notes in Operations Research" ("Appunti di Ricerca Operativa", in Italian) jointly developed by the members of the Operations Research Group of the Department of Computer Science of the University of Pisa. The Lecture notes are constantly improved, and are freely available to the students of several courses (in Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, ...) at the University of Pisa. The Lecture Notes can also be, and have been, freely used for courses of other Italian universities. The most recent version of the Lecture Notes can be freely downloaded from the web page of the Operations Research courses.
