A tag is a keyword or label that categorizes your question with other, similar questions. Using the right tags makes it easier for others to find and answer your question.
For questions referring to an Application Programming Interface (API) that performs or used to support Operations Research or OR-related functions. Do not use this tag for a general problem with a non…
For questions about the use of Simulated Annealing (SA) for solving combinatorial problems. SA is a probabilistic metaheuristic that can approximate the global optimum in a large (and usually discrete…
For questions about OR as it is used to solve puzzles and games.
Topics related to job search, be it academic or industrial. Anything from finding positions, writing applications, interviewing, to perspectives.
For questions about the study of finite or countable discrete structures, especially how to count or enumerate elements in a set (perhaps of all possibilities) or any subset. It includes questions on …
For questions related to empirical or computational bounds that quantify how far the objective function value of a given solution is from the optimal objective function value.
For questions related to Lagrangian decomposition, an optimization method in which one or more decision variable is doubled, the new variable is set equal to the original variable via a constraint, an…
For questions related to applications of operations research models to energy systems.
For questions about the primal Simplex method.
For questions about sequential data indexed by time. Time intervals between data may be regular or irregular.
Use on questions that relate to teaching, whether in academia or otherwise.
For questions related to probability distributions used to model demands for products or services, e.g., in an inventory or supply chain optimization context.
For questions on experimentation in computational OR, for example, the performing, analysing and reporting of experiments.
For questions about invariance under transformations, in OR usually the transformation of a solution into other solutions of the same objective value.
For questions related to the absolute value function, particularly as it is modeled in optimization problems.
For questions on problems that come from a finite representation of real numbers.
Logistics refers to the overall process of managing how resources are acquired, stored, and transported to their final destination.
Questions that use or are about JuMP and other Julia packages.
For questions related to constraints intended to eliminate subtours (disconnected tours) in routing problems.
