This project is going to be developped in the framework of the Industrial Doctorates Plan of the Government of Catalonia, through a Ph.D thesis of Ms. Grace Kelly Maureira under supervision of prof. F.-Javier Heredia (UPC) and Jaume Masip (CBRE). The purpose of this project is to develop stochastic mathematical optimization models to provide CBRE with a computational tool to optimize the strategical planning of the configuration and operation of shopping centers under uncertainty.
