“Operations Research Modeling for Economic Development: The Dance of a Mathematician”
Operations Research (OR) often operates by formulating mathematical models that are applicable to practical situations in many disciplines thereby enhancing the development of the economy. Hence, the title of this inaugural lecture, “Operations Research Modeling for Economic Development: The Dance of a Mathematician”. Mr. Vice Chancellor sir, in the course of this lecture we shall unfold some of the OR models I have formulated in my research which have been applied to solve practical economic problems. A model is a representation of a real system under study through capturing of its essential features.
