The Distribution of the Disputed Territories Using Mathematical Models on the Example of the Arctic Region

Student: Yahor Borsuk

Supervisor: Fuad T. Aleskerov

Faculty: Faculty of Computer Science

Educational Programme: Applied Mathematics and Information Science (Bachelor)

Final Grade: 9

Year of Graduation: 2020

The Arctic is a region rich in resources, there are both oil and gas fields. However, some part of the Arctic region is still not owned by any country. Considering the presence in this region of such large countries as Russia, the USA, Canada, Greenland, Norway and Iceland, a conflict of interests naturally arises regarding the right to use free territories. In this paper, we will consider existing models and methods for the distribution of free territories of the Arctic region, that take into account the individual level of countries' interest in resources, as well as maintaining the connectedness of the territories. In addition, new methods for improving the solution will be proposed. A program code will be developed that can apply these and previous methods to any similar territorial task. This code will be tested on real data of the Arctic region.
