scheduling timetabling problem

Can anyone direct me to mathematical literature dealing with the problem
of scheduling final exams? I believe such problems may also be called
timetabling? The problem is, for example, thousands of students may
be taking courses with hundreds of finals that need to be scheduled into
a weeks worth of exam periods. I've seen what are called "genetic"
algorithms, and also "descent" algorithms, and a "single-pass"
algorithm, but no good theory.
