Small business plans Our Small Business/ Small Disadvantaged Business subcontracting approach is focused on using local and regionally based businesses to implement our technical approach.
Our selected subcontractors will be engaged in substantial, meaningful, and technically challenging roles.
Research and teaching activities are complemented by an outreach program that encourages the transfer of ideas to the environment of Silicon Valley and beyond. Guest lecturers include key participants in the development of technology and/or policy. Prerequisites: ECON 50, MS&E 211, MS&E 252, or equivalents, or permission of instructor. Prerequisites: ECON 50, MS&E 211, MS&E 252, or equivalents, or permission of instructor. "Hacking for Defense": Solving National Security issues with the Lean Launchpad. In a crisis, national security initiatives move at the speed of a startup yet in peacetime they default to decades-long acquisition and procurement cycles. Ethical theory, feasibility, and desirability of a social order in which coercion by individuals and government is minimized and people pursue ends on a voluntary basis. Theory of polyhedral convex sets, linear inequalities, alternative theorems, and duality. Applications, theories, and algorithms for finite-dimensional linear and nonlinear optimization problems with continuous variables. Topics include interior-point methods, relaxation methods for nonlinear discrete optimization, sequential quadratic programming methods, optimal control and decomposition methods. Possible topics include but are not limited to, spectral graph theory, sparsification, oblivious routing, local partitioning, Laplacian system solving, and maximum flow.
Management Science and Engineering (MS&E) provides programs of education and research by integrating three basic strengths: The analytical and conceptual foundations include decision and risk analysis, dynamic systems, economics, optimization, organizational science, and stochastic systems. Startups operate with continual speed and urgency 24/7. Hacking for Diplomacy: Tackling Foreign Policy Challenges with the Lean Launchpad. At a time of significant global uncertainty, diplomats are grappling with transnational and cross-cutting challenges that defy easy solution including: the continued pursuit of weapons of mass destruction by states and non-state groups, the outbreak of internal conflict across the Middle East and in parts of Africa, the most significant flow of refugees since World War II, and a changing climate that is beginning to have impacts on both developed and developing countries. Topics: efficacy and ethics; use rights for property; contracts and torts; spontaneous order and free markets; crime and punishment based on restitution; guardian-ward theory for dealing with incompetents; the effects of state action-hypothesis of reverse results; applications to help the needy, armed intervention, victimless crimes, and environmental protection; transition strategies to a voluntary society. Fundamental Concepts in Management Science and Engineering. Each course session will be devoted to a specific MS&E Ph D research area. Variants of the simplex method and the state of art interior-point algorithms. Elements of convex analysis, first- and second-order optimality conditions, sensitivity and duality. Topic chosen in first class; different topics for individuals or groups possible.
