Mathematics Clinic is a 3-credit course intended to give students
practical experience applying mathematics to solve real-world
problems. The clinic is conducted as a research team, with the
students and faculty working together to solve a problem of interest
to a sponsoring corporation or government agency.
Problem Description: The
Satellite Mission Scheduling problem with Dynamic Tasking (SMS-DT)
involves scheduling tasks for a satellite, where new task requests can
arrive at any time, non-deterministically, and must be scheduled in
near real-time. Scheduling goals are i) no scheduled tasks will miss
their due dates; ii) scheduling of low priority tasks does not
interfere with the scheduling of higher priority tasks; and iii)
tasking, geometric, resource, and environmental constraints are all
Students should have a strong mathematical or technical background, but
need not be mathematics
