Many problems occurring in industrial and business management are on-line in nature, meaning that requests or demands of some sort arrive, and decisions must be made without knowledge of future requests or demands. The goal in these problems is always to minimize or maximize some objective, most often minimizing the amount of some resource used or increasing eﬃciency. Paging in computers and seat reservation systems for trains are two examples of such problems.
Christian Kudahl (CK) has been invited by Juraj Hromkovic to visit him and his group at ETH in Switzerland for the spring semester of 2015. I nominate him for funding for this trip. CK started his PhD studies in Computer Science at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Southern Denmark, on December 1, 2013. I am his advisor, and Lene Monrad Favrholdt is his co-advisor. His research topic is “Applying Advice to Online Problems”.
