The department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Limerick invites you to a seminar by Dr Radan Miryanov (University of Economics Varna):
Title: Optimizing Some Aspects of Maritime Logistics
Abstract: Optimizing Some Aspects of Maritime Logistics Abstract: Maritime logistics is responsible for a significant part of international trade and plays a crucial role in the economic prosperity of many countries. That is why the efforts of big number of scientists and experts nowadays are focused on improving some aspects of maritime logistics, especially its main components – sea transport and ports management. At the seminar some particular steps for optimising certain aspects of sea shipping and ports organisation will be proposed, using some up-to-date statistical data, based on the example of ports in Bulgaria and Europe. One of the main objectives of the discussion will be to examine some issues concerning maximising the profit and/or minimising the costs, whilst maintaining all of the shipping and ports activities. Several economic mathematical models will be constructed, some of them taking uncertain circumstances into account, in order to help optimise the organisation of shipping companies and port operators. Different methods and strategies for solving the proposed problems will be discussed, including some computerised online and offline tools.
This seminar will take place on Friday, February 24, at 4pm, in Room A2-002.
