I am having a constraint in the form : $$ x_i \leq z_j, \quad \forall i, j \in \{1, 2, .., n\}$$ I know that if the right part of the equation was a constant so something like $x_i \leq c[i]$ I could write something like:
@constraint(m, [i = 1:n], x[i] <= c[i]) But know that they have not always the same index , what can I do ?

@constraint(m, [i=1:n, j=1:n], x[i] <= z[j])


for i in 1:n, j in 1:n
    @constraint(m, x[i] <= z[j])

You might want to read the documentation: https://jump.dev/JuMP.jl/stable/manual/constraints/#Containers-of-constraints

Or look at similar problems in the tutorials: https://jump.dev/JuMP.jl/stable/tutorials/linear/facility_location/#JuMP-implementation

  • $\begingroup$ Just a comment. I have found that, if the problem is big, your second approach performs better than the first, in terms of CPU and memory usage. $\endgroup$ Nov 19, 2022 at 14:51
  • $\begingroup$ Sure. The first approach creates and returns a Matrix{ConstraintRef}, which can be useful if you want to access dual variables, etc. The second doesn't allocate or store the constraint references. $\endgroup$ Nov 20, 2022 at 18:45
