Scheduling people or machines may not seem like a mathematical question but there are many dramatic insights into such issues that are provided by adopting a mathematical point of view. Problems range from sports scheduling questions to assigning tasks to identical machines by a manufacturing company. The variety of problems is staggering and there is lots of lovely mathematics and computer science involved.
