The purpose of this study is to maximize the area under Receiver Operating Characteristic curve for binary classication problems using a scoring-based mixed integer linear programming formulation. We investigate exact approaches using a reformulation, combinatorial Benders cuts, and heuristic bounding methods. Our study presents computational results on benchmark datasets and paves the way for future studies on scoring-based approaches.
Ibrahim Edhem SAKARYA graduated from C agrbey Anatolian High School in 2012. He received his B.S. degree in Industrial Engineering from Özyeğin University in June 2017. After graduation, he joined the Master of Science program in Industrial Engineering at Özyeğgin University and has been working under the supervision of Assoc. Prof. Erhun Kundakcioglu.
