This ebook offers with the idea and purposes of the Reformulation- Linearization/Convexification procedure (RL T) for fixing nonconvex optimization difficulties. A unified remedy of discrete and non-stop nonconvex programming difficulties is gifted utilizing this procedure. In essence, the bridge among those varieties of nonconvexities is made through a polynomial illustration of discrete constraints. for instance, the binariness on a 0-1 variable x . might be equivalently J expressed because the polynomial constraint x . (1-x . ) = zero. the incentive for this booklet is J J the function of tight linear/convex programming representations or relaxations in fixing such discrete and non-stop nonconvex programming difficulties. The primary thrust is to begin with a version that offers an invaluable illustration and constitution, after which to additional advance this illustration via automated reformulation and constraint new release strategies. As pointed out above, the focus of this publication is the improvement and alertness of RL T to be used as an automated reformulation method, and likewise, to generate robust legitimate inequalities. The RLT operates in stages. within the Reformulation part, particular types of extra implied polynomial constraints, that come with the aforementioned constraints in relation to binary variables, are appended to the matter. The ensuing challenge is as a result linearized, other than that convinced convex constraints are often retained in XV specific specific situations, within the Linearization/Convexijication section. this can be performed through the definition of appropriate new variables to interchange each one certain variable-product time period. the better dimensional illustration yields a linear (or convex) programming relaxation.
