Literature for building solver portfolios

A portfolio of solvers is a collection of solvers with different configurations that share CPU time, CPU cores, and memory resources and try to get an answer as soon as possible. Solvers might also ...

How fair is limit solver threads when publishing?

Reading gurobi reference manual I found this: We have also found that certain classes of MIP models benefit from reducing the thread count, often all the way down to one thread. Starting multiple ...

How to (graphically) present computational results?

I am interested in evaluating and demonstrating various aspects of the performance of general solvers for mathematical optimization problems (in particular MILPs). I assume that I have a good testset ...
