内容简介

Discrete convex analysis provides powerful tools and methodologies to analyze and solve a variety of operations models. In this talk, I will briefly introduce several key concepts from discrete convex analysis, L-natural-convexity and M-natural-convexity as well as their variants, and their properties. I will then illustrate how they can be used to analyze challenging applications including appointment scheduling, inventory models with substitutable products, and portfolio contract models.
