PhD courses offered at ITN 2019

Graduate Course on Multiobjective Optimization (KTS)

Name of the course: Graduate Course on Multiobjective Optimization

Course responsible: Anders Peterson, anders.peterson@liu.se

Course description: This is an advanced course in applied mathematics. The course introduces the concept of multiobjective optimization and focuses on solution methods.

Prerequisites: The course relies on a solid background in mathematics and general optimization techniques, such as linear and nonlinear programming, integer programming and metaheuristics and is suitable for PhD students in the area of applied mathematics. The course follows “Part I Principles of multi-objective optimization methods” in the text book Collette, Y.; Siarry, P. (2003) Multiobjective optimization, corrected 2nd printing, Springer, Berlin, Germany. The course consists of six seminars, see the list below. For each seminar the students read the corresponding chapter of the course book and discuss it with other course participants.

Number of points: 6 ECTS

Time when the course starts (and ends if known): Course started January 30th, 2019.

Minimum number of students required to run the course (if any > 0): N/A.

Planning of public transportation and railway traffic (KTS)

Name of the course: Planning of public transportation and railway traffic (TNK098)

Course responsible: Anders Peterson, anders.peterson@liu.se and Carl Henrik Häll

Course description: This is an advanced course for master students, also suitable to PhD students. The purpose of the course is to give insights in how the planning and operation of public transportation and railway traffic is carried out. The course is focusing on strategic aspects such as transport network planning, timetable construction, rolling stock planning and pricing, but it also includes traffic and delay
management. The course is preparatory for research studies. After completing the course, the student shall be able to: describe state-of-the-art in research in planning of public transport and railway traffic, understand and describe relevant models and methods used to design a new transport network, evaluate this and discuss its strengths and weaknesses, understand and discuss issues regarding timetable construction and conflict resolution, in particular with respect to railway traffic, implement planning methods for solving numerical instances. The course is organized in three blocks (i) Public transport network modelling, (ii) Railway timetable construction and (iii) Demand-responsive public transport. The blocks are of equal size (2 ECTS) and completely independent, enabling the graduate student to form his own course of 2, 4 or 6 ECTS. Each block is also eligible parts of the CTS module course.

Number of points: 2/4/6 ECTS.

Time when the course starts (and ends if known): Semester period ht2, November 2019 – January 2020.

Minimum number of students required to run the course (if any > 0): The course will not be offered in case the undergraduate course TNK098 is cancelled.

Practical Electrochemistry (LOE)

Name of the course: Practical Electrochemistry

Course responsible: Mikhail Vagin, mikhail.vagin@liu.se

Course description: The course is designed for students and researchers from different backgrounds such as material science, medicine, chemistry, physics and electronics. The student-oriented course concept implies the discussion of the problems and the routine issues of electrochemical methods, which encounter the beginner. The course plan was developed on demands of attendees and contains theoretical and practical aspects. The special attention was focused on the electrochemical phenomena of conducting organic materials. The covered topics were introduction to electrochemistry, mass transfer, electron transfer kinetics, electrode potentials, voltammetry, impedance spectroscopy, steady-state techniques, conducting polymers and basic aspects of electrical-to-chemical interconversion technologies. The course contained 6 sessions followed by an exam as discussion with an examiner.

Number of points: 4 ECTS

Time when the course starts (and ends if known): Semester period ht2, November 2019 – January 2020.
