Section: Application Domains


Optimization exists in virtually all economic sectors. Simulation tools can be used to optimize the simulated system. Another domain is parameter identification (Idopt or Estime teams), where the deviation between measurements and theoretical predictions must be minimized. Accordingly, giving an exhaustive list of applications is impossible. Some domains where Inria has been involved in the past, possibly through the former Promath and Numopt teams are: production management, geophysics, finance, molecular modeling, robotics, networks, astrophysics, crystallography, ...Our current applicative activity includes: the management of electrical production (deterministic or stochastic), the design and operation of telecommunication networks.
