The New Face of Computing Symposium – William Cook

Russ and Sammie Chandler Chair and Professor
School of Industrial & Systems Engineering
Georgia Tech

Professor Cook's research interests are in combinatorial optimization and integer programming. He is also heavily involved in research dealing with computational issues involved in treating hard discrete problems such as large instances for the celebrated traveling salesman problem. He and research colleagues recently announced the solution of a specific 15,112-city TSP instance, the largest that has been solved to date from the TSPLIB set of instances.
