In this presentation, we will first give an overview of the mathematical foundations of multi-parametric programming for different classes of mathematical models, such as quadratic, mixed-integer linear, mixed-integer quadratic, and general convex continuous and mixed-integer optimization problems. We will then discuss some new theoretical results for bi-level and global parametric optimization problems. Finally, we will show the tremendous potential of parametric programming in the context of model based optimal control.
