### Linearization of objective function

Notation $\text{src}_{h,s},\text{dst}_{h,s},\text{ch}_{h,s}$ are constants. $a_{h,s},x_{i,j,s}$ are binary variables. $\text{wt}_{h,s}$ are continuous variables. Problem \begin{align}\min.&\...

### MIP: If integer variable $>0$ it should be equal to other integer variables $>0$

I have an MIP problem where $n$ different types of cars are delivering packages. Sometimes multiple types of cars are required to go to a single location. For example if car $1$ makes two deliveries ...

### McCormick envelopes and nonlinear constraints

I have a problem with a nonlinear constraint. The non-linearity stems from a term of the form $xb$, where $x \in \mathbb{R}^+$, $x < M$ and $b \in \{0, 1\}$. I am able to remove this non-linearity ...

### Mixed Integer Programming with product of a binary variable and multiple continuous variables

Suppose we have a binary variable $x$ and two non-negative continuous variables $y_1\ge 0$ and $y_2 \ge 0$. How can we linearize $xy_1 y_2$ ? FYI, this is a follow up question to this: How to ...

### Pricing of blends/mixtures across multiple timesteps

I have a simple blending problem, where each final product is a blend or mixture of several raw materials, and want to calculate the price per unit of weight for each of the products. So for a given ...

### Can we simplify (perhaps linearize) this constraint?

We are dealing with a stochastic model and one of the constraints is \begin{align} y_j=\frac{\sum_{i \in I}\sum_{k \in K}\mathbb{E}\left[X_{ik}^2\right]x^k_{ij}}{\sum_{i \in I} \sum_{k \in K} \mathbb{...

### Correct way to set a quadratic constraint Xpress

I'm implementing on Xpress a problem with different solution proposed on a paper. The idea is to decompose a matrix $X$ into a convex sum $\sum_{t}\lambda_t M^{(t)}$, where each $M^{(t)}$ has only ...

### using milp for a linear complementarity problem

I have to minimize $c^Tx$ subject to $Ax = b$, $x_iw_i = 0$ for all $i$, with $x$ non negative continuous and $w$ binary. What model should I use to solve this problem?

### Linearizing $y=\sum_{i=1}^n(z+c)\left(\frac{r_i^2}{1-r_i}\right)\phi_i$
Variables $0\le x< 1$, $y,z\ge 0$. We have a constraint $$y=(z+c)\frac{x^2}{1-x},$$ where constant $c>0$. We partitioned $x$ into $n$ intervals of equal length and defined a new variable \$\phi_i=...
