Abstract

MSBE Seminar: MIP Modelling Made Manageable

Can a user write a good MIP model without understanding linearization? Modelling languages such as AMPL and AIMMS are being extended to support more features, with the goal of making MIP modelling easier. A big step is the incorporation of predicates, such a “cycle” which encapsulate MIP sub-models. This talk explores the impact of such predicates in the MiniZinc modelling language (www.minizinc.org) when it is used as a MIP front-end. It reports on the performance of the resulting models, and the features of MiniZinc that make this possible.
