Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to

  • apply the basics of scheduling theory
  • classify scheduling problems
  • apply and analyze approximation algorithms for scheduling problems
  • apply scheduling theory in a parallel computing context

 

Subject of course

The course gives an introduction into the basics of scheduling theory, but will also highlight practical aspects when solving scheduling problems. The course introduces basic concepts and notation used in scheduling research. Then, selected topics are discussed in more detail, such as: shop scheduling, scheduling with parallel tasks, online scheduling, approximation algorithms in scheduling, divisible load scheduling, simulations and scheduling.
