DDr. Philipp Hungerländer



I am an Assistant Professor at the Institute of Mathematics at the University of Klagenfurt.


The two main fields of my research are semidefinite, conic and polynomial optimization and quadratic programming. In the first field the objective of my research is to provide guaranteed optimal or near-optimal solutions for important classes of large-scale discrete nonlinear optimization problems arising in engineering and economic applications. My current interests are in developing new models and algorithms for solving problems in the areas of graph drawing and layout. In the second field I work on developing new active-set algorithms with fair convergence properties and a strong practical performance that can be applied to convex/nonconvex, bound-constrained/equality constrained, continous quadratic problems. Additionally I am fascinated by game theory and do some research on different aspects of dynamic games.


I am member of the working group on combinatorial optimization lead by Prof. Franz Rendl.


I recently finished my PhD in Economics and Business Administration and I am currently working on my "habilitation" in Operations Research and Applied Mathematics.
