Some Challenging Practical Problems in Optimization
I will discuss problems I have been involved in at IBM. The aim will be to indicate some of the issues that arise in practice that we tend to not pay much attention to in theory. I will also demonstrate how theoretical results can be motivated by indirect practical issues, including some of "our" failures that I personally find frustrating and some of my prejudices that the audience might find equally frustrating. I hope to include examples that relate to the environment.
