"“Science of Better” podcast on nuclear smuggling interdiction,"
INFORMS, http://www.scienceofbetter.org/podcast/gaukler.html, November 2011.
In the post-Osama bin Laden age, the U.S. and nations around the
world still face the danger of terrorism in many forms. One threat
is terrorists smuggling nuclear material through ports and across
borders to assemble a nuclear weapon for a domestic attack. At
the 2011 INFORMS annual meeting
in Charlotte, North Carolina in November, Prof. Gaukler
and colleagues present a paper on O.R.
methods used to fight this threat. Prof. Gaukler previews his
research in this podcast.
