### Changing the order of $\sup$ and $\inf$

I have a problem in the following form \begin{align} \begin{array}{cll} \sup_{\theta \in \mathrm{dom}(f)} & \inf_{z \in \mathbb{R}^n} & \underbrace{f(\theta)}_{\text{concave in $\theta$}} + \...

### Minimax MILP problem

I have a MILP model which defines a relation between three real variables $x$, $y$ and $s$ where $s = f(x,y)$. I want to optimize the following objective: $$\min_x\max_y s$$ How can I achieve it? EDIT:...
