You should put (a link to) the liblpsolve55.so somewhere on the library search paths, for example /usr/lib: $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/lp_solve/liblpsolve55.so /usr/lib Also make sure that you have 32-bit (x86) version of liblpsolve55.so installed. For example, on 64-bit Ubuntu you can install 32-bit version of liblpsolve55.so as follows: $...

Yes, you can do this by introducing a new binary variable. (Note that we are modifying the underlying formulation, not tinkering with CPLEX per se for the modulo.) Your constraints are x1 + x2 + x3 = 0 OR 2 Let's introduce a new binary variable Y and rewrite the...

Gurobi isn't stalling. It has found a solution within 0.11% of optimal and is continuing to try to improve the bound to 0.01%. If you want to stop it sooner, you should change the parameter MIPGap. To actually make Gurobi faster, you can try changing other parameters with the Tuning...

The parameters Aeq and beq represent linear equality constraints. Each row of Aeq has the coefficients of an equation, and the corresponding row of beq is the right hand side. Therefore, the number of rows in Aeq and beq must be the same. Also, the number of rows of c...

This was my concern before. By running mat[...] you are converting the big.matrix in to a regular matrix. The function will need to be rewritten so it is compatible with big.matrix objects.

I could sort out my problem. It is happening because of some of the variables are having value 0.000000000000000027773 or 0.99999999999999999. So if I do some pre-processing like making those 0.000000000000027773 values 0 or 0.99999999999999999 1 then GLPK gives feasible solution

This seems to be caused by an error with the older version of cbc shipped with pulp 1.5.6 I will repackage a newer version of cbc with pulp 1.5.7 ASAP. Also you can use your other version of CBC (if it is on the path) by using the COIN_CMD solver.

In AMPL, you can create or define your own "sets" for valid indices and use them in your constraints. So, in your case, to avoid invalid indices, you can define a set of permissible indices: param inner_i {2..(N-1)} and loop over those when creating the constraints. The price we pay...

According to this Wikipedia article the travelling salesman problem can be modelled as an integer linear program, which I believe to be the key issue of the question.

Yes, you can set a custom basis by using glp_set_col_stat(). You will have to set each column to be Basic (GLP_BS) or Non-basic (GLP_NL). You could also use the API glp_adv_basis method, though I don't think it lets you customize the basis. I recommend the very readable Section 2.6 in...

Assuming that you are allowed to have fractional grams of food items, you can solve this problem analytically, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linear_least_squares_%28mathematics%29 for details.

Because Quw and ruw are both data, all constraints as well as the objective are linear in the yuw decision variables. As a result, this is a linear programming problem that can be approached by the lpSolve package. To abstract this out a bit, let's assume R=20 and C=10 describe...

This can be formulated as a mixed integer linear program. This is a linear program where some of the variables are constrained to be integer. Contrary to linear programs, solving the general integer program is NP-hard. However, there are many commercial or open source solvers that can solve efficiently large-scale...
