SICSA DVF: Professor Mark Wallace ‘MIP Modelling Made Manageable’

Date(s) - 10/06/2019
1:45 pm - 3:30 pm

The University of Edinburgh

SICSA is pleased to welcome Mark Wallace, Professor of Data Science & AI; Monash University to Scotland.  He will be presenting a research seminar on 10 June at The University of Edinburgh Business School

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 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.
