Dutch Network on the Mathematics of Operations Research, Landelijk Netwerk Mathematische Besliskunde, LNMB-home

Welcome to the Dutch Network on the Mathematics of Operations Research (LNMB)

The LNMB is the Dutch Network on the Mathematics of Operations Research (in Dutch: Landelijk Netwerk Mathematische Besliskunde). This network is an interuniversity co-operation in which all Dutch universities and the Centre for Mathematics and Computer Science (CWI) in Amsterdam participate. The LNMB has been established in 1987; from 1987 until 2001 the University of Groningen was its administrator, from 2002 until 2006 the University of Maastricht, from January 2007 until January 2020 the University of Twente, and currently the University of Amsterdam acts as administrator of the LNMB. Prof.dr. G. Schäfer (CWI) is the chairman and prof.dr. R. Núñez Queija (UvA) the director.

The tasks of the LNMB are twofold. Firstly, the LNMB offers courses for PhD and Master students. The PhD programme, which is centered around 18 courses, taught in a two-years cycle, aims at broadening and deepening the knowledge of the PhD students in the mathematics of Operations Research. Secondly, the LNMB is an organization of mathematical researchers in the field of Operations Research. All universities as well as the CWI are represented in the General Board out of whom a Managing Board is chosen.
