Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Programming language
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Algorithm

Andrea Schaerf mostly deals with Theoretical computer science, Artificial intelligence, Local search, Mathematical optimization and Computational complexity theory. The concepts of her Theoretical computer science study are interwoven with issues in Combinatorial search, Object-oriented programming, Invariant and Metaheuristic. Her work deals with themes such as Best-first search, Machine learning, Search algorithm and Natural language processing, which intersect with Artificial intelligence.

Andrea Schaerf studies Guided Local Search which is a part of Local search. Her Tabu search, Simulated annealing and Combinatorial optimization study in the realm of Mathematical optimization connects with subjects such as Job shop scheduling and Upper and lower bounds. Her Tabu search research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Memetic algorithm, Constraint satisfaction and Heuristics.

Her most cited work include:

  • A Survey of Automated Timetabling (566 citations)
  • {\cal A}{\cal L} -log: Integrating Datalog and Description Logics (299 citations)
  • Reasoning in description logics (299 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her main research concerns Mathematical optimization, Local search, Tabu search, Theoretical computer science and Simulated annealing. Andrea Schaerf focuses mostly in the field of Mathematical optimization, narrowing it down to topics relating to Constraint satisfaction and, in certain cases, Operations research. The Local search study combines topics in areas such as Portfolio optimization, Selection and Metaheuristic.

Her study in the fields of Guided Local Search under the domain of Tabu search overlaps with other disciplines such as Timetabling problem. Her research in Theoretical computer science intersects with topics in Computational complexity theory, Complexity class and Programming language. While the research belongs to areas of Simulated annealing, Andrea Schaerf spends her time largely on the problem of Set, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Artificial intelligence, Local search, Benchmark and Relation.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Mathematical optimization (33.33%)
  • Local search (25.33%)
  • Tabu search (21.33%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2013-2020)?

  • Simulated annealing (16.67%)
  • Mathematical optimization (33.33%)
  • Theory of computation (4.67%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Andrea Schaerf spends much of her time researching Simulated annealing, Mathematical optimization, Theory of computation, Set and Local search. Her research integrates issues of Computational intelligence, Metaheuristic and Integer programming in her study of Simulated annealing. Andrea Schaerf integrates several fields in her works, including Mathematical optimization and Job shop scheduling.

Her Theory of computation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Operations research, Curriculum and Extension. Her Set research integrates issues from Solver, Theoretical computer science and Benchmark. Her Theoretical computer science research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Modeling language, Negation and LOOP.

Between 2013 and 2020, her most popular works were:

  • The first international nurse rostering competition 2010 (54 citations)
  • XHSTT: an XML archive for high school timetabling problems in different countries (41 citations)
  • Dynamic patient admission scheduling with operating room constraints, flexible horizons, and patient delays (37 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Programming language
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Algorithm

Her main research concerns Competition, Nursing, Benchmark, Testbed and Operations research. Among her Nursing studies, you can observe a synthesis of other disciplines of science such as Process, Selection, Relevance, Problem description and Task. Andrea Schaerf combines subjects such as Programming language, Syntax, Benchmarking and Database with her study of Benchmark.

Andrea Schaerf regularly ties together related areas like Theory of computation in her Operations research studies.
