# Category:Operations research

Here is a list of articles in the Operations research category of the Computing portal that unifies foundations of mathematics and computations using computers. **Operations research**, **operational research**, or simply **O.R.**, is the use of mathematical models, statistics and algorithms to aid in decision-making. It is most often used to analyze complex real-world systems, typically with the goal of improving or optimizing performance. It is one form of applied mathematics.

Operations research is included in the JEL classification codes as JEL: C44 |
