Hierarchical location-routing problems in dairy industry

In this talk, we discuss our new approach to design reverse logistics models for dairy industries, in particular whey products. Whey is a by-product of cheese making with many applications spanning from dairy and meat to pharmaceuticals. We develop a hierarchical location-routing model for a whey recovery network design. In this class of models, the location and routing decisions are made simultaneously. As the problem is NP-hard, it may not be possible to solve even the small-size instances efficiently. We suggest different approaches such as adding valid inequalities and improving lower and upper bounds to solve the problem in a reasonable amount of time.

CARMA Workshop

Interactions Between Semigroups and Operator Algebras

Monday, 17th Jul 2017 — Friday, 21st Jul 2017

(Location to be decided)

The aim of this workshop is to bring together the world's foremost experts on the theory of semigroups and their relationships to other fields of mathematics such as operator algebras and totally disconnected locally compact groups. This workshop will allow the international leaders in the field to come to Australia to teach young Australian ECRs, and to forge new collaborations with Australian mathematicians.

Details will be available on the conference website.

Operator algebras associated to semigroups can be traced back to a famous theorem of Coburn from the 1960s. The theory has recently been reinvigorated through Xin Li's construction of semigroup C*-algebras. Li's construction has introduced new and interesting classes of C*-algebras, which have deep connections to number theory and dynamical systems. One connection that will be thoroughly explored through this meeting is that to the representation theory of totally disconnected locally compact groups.
