Multiobjective optimization in land development
Dr. Steven A. Gabriel, Dr. José Faria (Ph.D. , CEE UMD, 2005, Florida International University), Dr. Glenn Moglen, have developed multiobjective optimization models in land development. These models balance the objectives of different stakeholders such as: government planners, environmentalists, and land developers. Typically, the related optimization problems are mixed-integer linear or quadratic programs.
