### How to convert non-normal probabilistic constraints to deterministic ones for mathematical modelling?

I am working on a chance-constrained optimisation model that takes into account uncertainty. I am aware of how to convert constraints that are of a probabilistic nature into the equivalent ...

### 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 ...

### Does it make sense to use strict equality constraint in optimization?

Once I learned from some post that the strict equality constraint in optimization problem does not make much sense. We should always use $\le$ constraint. How far this is true. If I must have a ...

### Precedence constraints using binary variables - DOCPLEX

I would like to establish a precedence constraint to ensure the precedence relation of tasks. I have a set of tasks available, but required tasks are not always the same. It means, the tasks executed ...

### 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 $2$...
