The GLPKSolver package (available here for the Optimization.Framework is now able read .mod and .dat files into your model. Usage: var model = new Model(); model.Load(“diet.mod”, “diet.dat”); You can then go ahead and work with the model, i.e. solve or manipulate it.
You may have heard, that Gurobi has released the next version of their solver software. Today we released version 0.3.1062.0 of the Optimization.Framework which adds support for Gurobi 5.0. As always, you can get the latest version of the Optimization.Framework from the Nuget repository: http://nuget.org/packages/Optimization.Framework.
We had a few requests for a forum where people can ask questions about the Optimization.Framework recently, so here it is: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/optimizationframework-forum. Lars
Today I got a surprise visit from Jochen, a student, who just finished his bachelor thesis at the group of Prof. Kundisch (Information Management and E-Finance). He had been using the Optimization.Framework in his thesis and wanted to say thank you for the Framework and a few hints I had given him. Not only did [...]
Today we released a new NuGet package, which allows you to use GLPK with the Optimization.Framework. The great thing about this package is that – it will also install the Optimization.Framework automatically – it will install the precompiled assemblies of GLPK – it configures the paths to the assemblies by changing your app.config file accordingly [...]
In our first tutorial we explain how you can use the framework in order to build a sudoku solver. To download the source code click here To see the source code click read the full article. Credits to my brother Nils, who cut this video for me. I know this is a lot of work, [...]
You can now request features and submit bug reports to the Optimization.Framework project at http://youtrack.optimizationzen.com The screenshot shows how to do that:
We just released our Optimization.Framework, which lets you formulate mathematical models in C# and use a number (in the current release we have interfaces to Gurobi and Cplex) of solvers to solve them. In the next weeks we will post a few “Howto” screencasts in which we will demonstrate how we think our framework is [...]
