Invited Talk by Robert E. Bixby
Location: Otto-Hahn-Str. 14 room E23
Title: The Gurobi Solver
This talk will begin with a description of the solver design both in terms of accessibility and the underlying algorithmic framework. This framework has been built to provide maximum flexibility in exploiting current strategies for solving mixed-integer programs (MIP). We will discuss our approaches for handling the key MIP issues in deterministic parallel, MIP search, cutting planes. Finally, we will present computational results for the Gurobi MIP solver.
