Managing energy is an important topic in a variety of fields and technologies. In this
course, we will study several differentproblems related to energy, including
With each area, we will look at the modelling issues
and the study the underlying computational/mathematical/algorithmic problems.
One purpose of this course is to bring together students who are
interested in a range of problems related to energy and try to expose
everyone to the other areas and to enable further research. We will
fill in the relevant background to understand these
diverse areas as needed.
The course will be a seminar, with students expected to read,
participate and present.
- scheduling a speed-scalable computer
- managing a datacenter
- routing with energy concerns
- power flows in electrical networks
- demand response
- electricity pricing
- energy harvesting
- models of energy efficient computing.
