### shadow prices associated with nonnegativity constraints

Why are shadow prices associated with nonnegativity constraints also called as reduced costs, even if they have the same interpretation as shadow prices associated with an optimal solution? Why the ...

### Linear constraint formulation (OR-statement)

I have the decision variable $X_{iz}$ And I have two parameters $T_i\in\{0,1\}$ and $IT_z\in\{0,1,2\}$. I can only assign $i$ to $z$ if the following holds: for $T_i=0$, $IT_z$ needs to be $0$ or $2$...
