The Applications of Linear Programming

18-19 June 2018
Versione stampabile

In the last 30 years, the practical use of Linear Programming has been easier and easier. At present, specific libraries, both open-source and commercial, are available for the most important “community” scientific languages, such as R, Python, Julia, often including algebraic modeling systems. Moreover, the capabilities of Linear Programming software are including the possibility of rounding heuristic, the design of user-callback subroutines in Branch&Bound, and many more, not to mention the possibility of solving problems with thousands of variable, thanks to the hardware improvements.

The aim of the workshop is to provide an overview of the many applications of linear programming, from data analysis, to production planning and decision-making and more, and how to include Linear Programming subroutines in algorithms for specific problems, taking advantage of its specific features.
