Vehicle routing problem is a classical problem of integer programming area. In the literature, its most frequent main is to find routes that minimize the total transportation cost of people or goods. There are many variants of the problem, among which the transport of people is intensely studied. Furthermore, it allows reducing CO2 emission, sound pollution and the time spent by people in order to move from one place to another. The project aim is to enable the candidate to deepen his knowledge in integer programming area, using the vehicle routing problem as motivation.
