OPTIM - Research group in Optimization

The OPTIM group conducts research on optimization methods, with the aim to develop and apply methods appropriate to the problems of air traffic management.

The optimization is a discipline involved in many domains, both applications than academic, which has a theoretical framework, a rigorous mathematical modeling, and an effective set of practical methods that can be adapted to the problems of air traffic.

Research themes

Here are the main issues treated by the OPTIM group, on optimization, its applications and similar related topics . The research topics are grouped according to the classification of the National Council of Universities (CNU)

These activities are described in the Research pages


The optimization methods developped by MAIAA to solve problems of air traffic management include:


The Air Traffic Management is a domain where the applications of the optimization are numerous.

Here is a list of major ATM applications on which MAIAA lecturers work:
