Subject: Constrained Global Optimization Survey

I just completed an extensive survey on constrained global

A. Neumaier,
Complete Search in Continuous Global Optimization and Constraint Satisfaction

This survey covers the state of the art of techniques for solving
general purpose constrained global optimization problems and
continuous constraint satisfaction problems, with emphasis on
complete techniques that provably find all solutions (if there are
finitely many and rounding errors are ignored).
The core of the material is presented in sufficient detail that
the survey may serve as a text for teaching constrained global

The survey will be published as part of
Acta Numerica 2004 (A. Iserles, ed.)
Cambridge University Press 2004.

computation (theory and/or practice) associated with modeling,
simulation, design, optimization, control, and visualization of
engineering systems. It includes modeling and simulation of physical
phenomena and product behavior (Engineering Science); and modeling
and design of complex systems to achieve maximum operational
performance (Systems Optimization). The holder of this position
should be able to teach graduate level subjects in his or her field
of expertise and undergraduate subjects within his or her home

opportunity to work in the highly integrated environment of the foundation
and to gain a working knowledge of some of the practices and ideas driving
other scientific disciplines.

Excellent people skills and an ability to work with data in a programming
environment are essential.

A Ph.D. in Mathematics or Statistics would be ideal, but we would consider
an application from a candidate with a masters degree and additional
experience or a candidate with a higher degree in a mathematics-related

The position is permanent and the starting point of the salary scale
($48,451 to $89,774) is commensurate with experience. Thus, for example, a
postdoc with some experience past the doctoral degree could benefit from
this flexibility.
