Mathematical optimization model of round robin schedule arrangements in sports competition

Author(s): Yueqin Xie

The schedule arrangement is of great importance in sports events. Because of the schedule arrangements issue in the 2012 London Olympics, Yu Yang andWangXiaoli, two badminton players fromChina, were sentenced disqualified for negative competition. It is thus clear that schedule arrangements largely affect the outcome of the game.Aiming at grouping single cycle in badminton competition, this study establishes relative mathematical model based on “Beagle” scheduling method and counterclockwise rotation method and puts forward the optimal schedule arrangements, providing theoretic reference for the reasonable arrangements in big games.
