A mathematical puzzle where you have to optimize a certain objective function (maximize profit, minimize cost).

A puzzle with strong mathematical contents, where you have to optimize a certain objective function. Standard goals are

• to maximize the profit,

• to minimize the cost,

• to identify / analyze / describe the corresponding extremal situations.

Roughly speaking, optimization problems may be classified into

• combinatorial (optimization concerning discrete scenarios)

• continuous (optimization over the reals)

• stochastic (optimization with probabilistic input)
