Research Interests

Prof Gondzio is interested in the theory and implementation of optimization methods for linear, quadratic and nonlinear programming. He is also interested in the use of linear algebra techniques and sparse matrix factorisation methods applied in optimization. His interests include the use of parallel and distributed computing for solving real-life very large optimization problems arising in telecommunications, energy sector and finance.
