Overview of Next Steps

This topic addresses questions you might have after running a solver. The questions include:

  • Is the answer reliable?

  • What can you do if the solver fails?

  • Is the minimum smaller than all other minima, or only smaller than nearby minima? (Local vs. Global Optima)

  • What can you do if the solver takes too long?

The list of questions is not exhaustive. It covers common or basic problems.

You can access relevant answers from many solvers' default exit message. The first line of the exit message contains a link to a brief description of the result. This description contains a link leading to documentation.
