摘要Revenue Management (RM) is an important field in operations research in which mathematical tools are used to make optimal pricing, inventory, and marketing decisions. The primary goal of RM is to selling the right product to the right customer at the right time for the right price. The practice of RM is ubiquitous in nowadays businesses and has become one of the key problems in many industries. In this talk, I will first give a broad view of this field and show where and how RM has been used in practice. Then I will present several basic problems in revenue management, showing how mathematical tools can be employed to obtain optimal solutions in those problems. I will also present several further research opportunities in this field.

   This seminar also serves a purpose as an information session for the Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISyE) program in the University of Minnesota. As a fast growing program with several world well-known faculties, we are looking for mathematical competent students from Tsinghua to join our program as either MS or PhD students. I will first present some basic information about our department and the potential opportunities and then answer questions from the audience.
