Degree bounded geometric spanning trees with a bottleneck objective function
(2019)We introduce the geometric $\delta$minimum bottleneck spanning tree problem ($\delta$MBST), which is the problem of finding a spanning tree for a set of points in a geometric space (e.g., the Euclidean plane) such that ... 
Promoting change in teacher practice through supported differentiation of instruction in mathematics
(2019)Differentiated instruction has been shown to be effective in improving student learning outcomes; however, the resulting work load can be difficult for teachers to manage. A teaching package known as the NRP (Number Resource ... 
Topics in optimisation
(2018)This thesis addresses four problems in continuous and discrete optimisation. The first problem is about using column generation – an advanced technique in mixed integer programming – to design schedules for students in the ...
