"Heuristics for Integer Nonlinear Optimization"
DATE: August 8, 2007
TIME: - Description:
SPEAKER: Kumar Abhishek, Lehigh, MCS
LOCATION: Building 221, A-261, Argonne
Mixed integer nonlinear programs (MINLPs) are a class of NP-hard optimization problems with a wide range of applications in science and industry. We motivate and present a new heuristic for finding feasible points rapidly, and show that its inclusion in a standard MINLP solver reduces the solution time significantly.
