### Substituting inequality by equality constraints

Let $\mathbf{A}=\left(a_{ij}\right)$ be a $n\times J$ matrix with $a_{ij}\geq 0$, $n>J$ and such that no row or column has all its entries equal to zero. Let also $\mathbf{k}=\left(k_j\right)$ be a ...

### How to linearize this multiplicative constraint?

I have a constraint in the form $\sqrt{|\sum_{c\in C}{h_cw_c}|^2}\ge\sqrt{x}\zeta$ Here, $h_c$ is s row vector (know), $w_c$ is a column vector (variable). $x$ and $\zeta$ are also optimization ...

### Simplification of nonlinear constraint for optimization

I solve a nonlinear optimization problem with constraint $$\sum_{j=1}^S \ln \Bigg( \Big(1 -x_j c_k + y_j d_k\Big)^2 + \Big( x_j d_k + y_j c_k \Big)^2 \Bigg) \leq 0, \: k = 1, \dots , K$$ where the ...

### Meaning difference between SUMMATION and not in the MIP model

I'm asking you a question because I was confused about MIP while reading the paper. This paper is about dual crane optimization. In the MIP model of the paper, equations (7) and (8) are used to model ...
