Study optimization algorithms for multi-service and multi-layer network design and dimensioning.
Particular attention is devoted to the network design of ATM, MPLS and MPLS over WDM networks.
Depending on the particular problems under study, different optimization techniques are pursuit: (i) model reformulations for efficient use of branch-and-bound and branch-and-cut algorithms and (ii) utilization of heuristic based algorithms like Lagrangean Relaxation with Sub-Gradient Optimization.
