The aim of the Logistics Network Optimization course is to build on knowledge and understanding of mathematical models of supply systems and develop the basic methods to solving the simple knapsack problem and the optimal production problem. Also concepts of linear algebra and queue theory are used to solve some classical problems on graphs like the shortest path problem, the minimum spanning tree problem and the vehicle routing problem. All mathematical models are applied in practical case studies simulations.
Students will get some basics about pollution of the environment, with an emphasis on traffic pollution. Majority of the subject content will be devoted to air and sea pollution, consequences of traffic and transportation activities and measures for pollution reduction. The course will also include topics about toxicity and risk assessment, international standards, regulations and programs of pollution control and models of pollution distribution and spreading. Water pollution in the Gulf of Trieste, with special reference to the impact of traffic, will be presented as a case study. Practical part of the course consists of seminar work and consultations.
