grbaircrew
Purpose
Test of an air-crew schedule generation problem.
Calling Syntax
grbaircrew
Description
Test of an air-crew schedule generation problem. Based on D.M.Ryan, Airline Industry, Encyclopedia of Operations Research and Management Science. Two subfunctions are used (defined at the end of the grbaircrew.m file): The function generateT oDs create ToDs, i.e. Tours of Duty. The function sectordata generates some test data.
M-files Used
abc2gap.m, gurobi.m
grbbiptest
Purpose
Test of TOMLAB /GUROBI level 1 interface solving three larger binary integer linear optimization problems calling the GUROBI solver.
Calling Syntax
function grbbiptest(Cut, PreSolve, grbControl)
Description of Input
Input | Description |
---|---|
Cut | Value of the cut strategy control parameter, default C ut = -1.
Cut = -1, auto select of Cut = 1 or Cut = 2. Cut = 0, no cuts. Cut = 1, conservative cut strategy. Cut = 2, aggressive cut strategy |
PreSolve | Value of the PRESOLVE control parameter, default PreSolve = 1.
PreSolve = 0: no presolve. PreSolve = 1, do presolve. |
grbControl | The initial GUROBI parameter structure. Here the user may set additional control parameters. Default empty. |
Description
Test of three larger binary integer linear optimization problems calling the GUROBI solver. The test problem 1 and 2 have 1956 variables, 23 equalities and four inequalities with both lower and upper bounds set.
Test problem 1, in bilp1.mat, is randomly generated. It has several minima with optimal zero value. GUROBI runs faster if avoiding the use of a cut strategy, and skipping presolve. Test problem 2, in bilp2.mat, has a unique minimum. Runs faster if avoiding the use of presolve.
Test problem 3, in bilp1211.mat, has 1656 variables, 23 equalities and four inequalities with lower and upper bounds set. Runs very slow without the use of cuts. A call grbbiptest(0, 0) gives the fastest execution for the first two problems, but will be extremely slow for the third problem.
Timings are made with the Matlab functions tic and toc.
M-files Used
gurobi.m, grbPrint.m
grbiptest
Purpose
Test of the TOMLAB /GUROBI level 1 interface solving three larger integer linear optimization problems calling the GUROBI solver.
Calling Syntax
function grbiptest(Cut, PreSolve, grbControl)
Description of Input
Input | Description |
---|---|
Cut | Value of the cut strategy parameters, default Cut = -1.
Cut = -1, auto select of C ut = 1 or Cut = 2. Cut = 0, no cuts. Cut = 1, conservative cut strategy. Cut = 2, aggressive cut strategy See grbbiptest, page 22. |
PreSolve | Value of the PRESOLVE control parameter, default PreSolve = 1.
PreSolve = 0, no presolve. PreSolve = 1, do presolve. |
grbControl | The initial grbControl structure. Here the user may set additional control parameter. Default empty. |
Description
Test of three larger integer linear optimization problems calling the GUROBI solver. The test problems have 61 variables and 138 linear inequalities. 32 of the 138 inequalities are just zero rows in the matrix A. The three problems are stored in ilp061.mat, ilp062.mat and ilp063.mat.
Code is included to remove the 32 zero rows, and compute better upper bounds using the positivity of the matrix elements, right hand side and the variables. But this does not influence the timing much, the GUROBI presolve will do all these problem changes.
Timings are made with the Matlab functions tic and toc.
M-files Used
gurobi, xprinti, grbPrint
