Applied Integer Programming: Modeling and Solution by Der-San Chen

By Der-San Chen

An available remedy of the modeling and resolution of integer programming difficulties, that includes sleek functions and softwareIn order to totally understand the algorithms linked to integer programming, it is very important comprehend not just how algorithms paintings, but additionally why they paintings. utilized Integer Programming incorporates a specific emphasis in this element, targeting challenge modeling and resolution utilizing advertisement software program. Taking an application-oriented method, this publication addresses the artwork and technological know-how of mathematical modeling relating to the combined integer programming (MIP) framework and discusses the algorithms and linked practices that let these types to be solved so much efficiently.The booklet starts off with assurance of profitable purposes, systematic modeling approaches, standard version varieties, transformation of non-MIP versions, combinatorial optimization challenge types, and automated preprocessing to procure a greater formula. next chapters current algebraic and geometric simple ideas of linear programming idea and community flows wanted for figuring out integer programming. eventually, the ebook concludes with classical and glossy answer techniques in addition to the major parts for development an built-in software program procedure in a position to fixing large-scale integer programming and combinatorial optimization problems.Throughout the ebook, the authors display crucial options via a variety of examples and figures. every one new proposal or set of rules is followed by means of a numerical instance, and, the place acceptable, pics are used to attract jointly assorted difficulties or ways right into a unified entire. additionally, beneficial properties of resolution ways present in trendy advertisement software program are pointed out during the book.Thoroughly classroom-tested, utilized Integer Programming is a wonderful publication for integer programming classes on the upper-undergraduate and graduate degrees. It additionally serves as a well-organized reference for execs, software program builders, and analysts who paintings within the fields of utilized arithmetic, machine technological know-how, operations examine, administration technological know-how, and engineering and use integer-programming options to version and clear up real-world optimization difficulties.

Example text

Unfortunately, the formulated model requires an enormous number of binary variables and constraints even for a moderate-sized problem. Modeling combinatorial optimization problems will be discussed in Chapters 5 and 6, and the solution methods to these problems will be a main theme of Chapters 11-13. 4 SUCCESSFUL INTEGER PROGRAMMING APPLICATIONS The authors believe that integer programming plays a key role in operations research, an observation supported by analysis below. This textbook is grounded in theoretical developments in IP over the pastfivedecades, but is written in hope of bridging the gap between academic developments in IP and modern OR practice.

In either case, a penalty is imposed on each unit of excess or shortage of inventory. If no amount of shortage is allowed, a very large penalty should be imposed. Note that any excessive inventory implies production "too soon" and any shortage of inventory implies tardy production. Thus, the primary objective of the just-in-time production problem may be modeled as to minimize the total penalties caused by the earliness/tardiness for all products over the planning horizon. The unit penalty of earliness and of tardiness, which may or may not be the same, may be assessed by the management.

10. The simultaneousness assumption implies that a feasible solution must simultaneously satisfy all the constraint equations and inequalities. That is, any feasible solution must not violate any constraint in a given mixed IP. If a problem requires only a subset of constraints to be satisfied, then it must be transformed into an equivalent problem in which all constraints must be satisfied simultaneously. Chapter 3 will discuss how to perform this transformation. 2 MODELING PROCESS Many definitions of operations research (OR) have been published over the five-decade history of ORS A/INFORMS.
