I decided to try an experiment this semester that involves possibly torturing a few grad students: I proposed that the students in my grad-level course on discrete optimization would maintain a blog for course of the semester. Amazingly, the students in my class agreed to my little experiment! I am happy to say that our blog, the not-so-cleverly titled Discrete Optimization Blog, has been live for two weeks now.
If you’re interested, please stop by and visit us. Blog posts are due on Mondays at noon (from now until the first week in May). You can read more about the blog assignment here. As far as I know, this is the first operations research course blog, and I think the students are doing a great job.
