MT365 - Video 7

Video 7 is called "This little flower went to market". Locations: Amsterdam Flower Market, Bloemenveiling Aalsmeer ( Flower Auction Aalsmeer, Holland ) and the Scilly Islands in Great Britain. An interesting documentary about decisions regarding transportation and distribution a flower producer has to take. It is not always possible, even when using mathematical methods, to find a guaranteed optimal solution although in many cases such a solution can be found. Problems shown involved the selection of  type of transport: land, sea or air and the difficult bin packing issue which involves loading several trucks with batches of flowers of different size.

Now that I have started MT365 I am learning various new features of Mathematica as well. Particularly those in the Graph Database and the Combinatorica package.

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
