abstract

In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to Discrete Optimization and its application in several of my projects. In particular, I will highlight how flat panel displays could benefit from methods of this field. This includes linear programming models for multiline addressing of matrix displays (e.g. OLED) and for local dimming of LCD-back/edge-light. Moreover, I will outline how to get from these models to hardware implementations that actually drive such displays.
