We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow more. A source of information on model building and problem solving using Library modules is the book "Optimization with IBM OSL," by Hung, Rom, and Waren (ISBN ), published by Scientific Press, which is now a subsidiary of Duxbury Press. URLs for sources of additional information on OSL and on optimization in general can be found in Links. Find all the books, read about the author, and more. See search results for this author.

Hung, Allan D. Waren. Traditionally, such an optimization relies on brute-force search or local search algorithms, which are computationally intensive, and will be slow on low-power platforms (which increases latency.
Hyper Sensitivity Analysis (HSA) is an intuitive generalization of conventional sensitivity analysis, where the term "hyper" indicates that the sensitivity analysis is conducted with respect to functions rather than numeric values. In this paper Composite Concave Programming is used to perform HSA in the area of Portfolio Optimization Problems. Abstract. We present a framework for automatic tightening of general 0–1 programs. A given constraint is tightened by using its own structure as well as information from other constraints. An optimization system for the planning and scheduling of a petrochemical complex is presented in this work. The complex uses naphtha, with a wide range of properties and costs, as its main feedstock. Depending on the plants production constraints and market conditions, the optimization of the feedstock blending has a significant economical impact. Process Systems Engineering B. Chen and A.W.

Another useful book is the "Optimization Software Guide," by Jorge More' and Stephen Wright, from SIAM Books. Call to order ($, less ten percent if you are a SIAM member). It contains references to 75 available software packages (not all of them just LP), and goes into more detail than is possible in this FAQ. The objective of this paper is the development and solution of nonlinear and mixed-integer (MIP) optimization models for real-world planning and scheduling problems in petroleum refineries. The solution process using the IBM OSL stochastic programming code is fast enough to generate virtually online decisions and results and allows for easy interaction of the user with the model to improve pension fund performance. contained complete optimization, taking data as an input file and producing a solution file, rather than being a subroutine library. Currently, both the mathematical programming system (MPS) and the library approach (e.g., IBM OSL) are used. With the growth of object-oriented programming, there is a third paradigm: a shell that serves.
