From the series: Mathematical Modeling with Optimization
Alan Weiss, MathWorks
Follow a step-by-step process for turning a problem statement into a mathematical statement. The mathematical statement is converted into a form that can be solved by Optimization Toolbox™ solvers in the next two videos in the series, Part 2a or Part 2b.
Part 1: From Problem Description to Mathematical Program Transform a problem description into a mathematical program that can be solved using optimization, using a steam and electric power plant example.
Part 2a: Problem-Based Linear Programming Solve a linear program with Optimization Toolbox solvers and a problem-based approach, using a steam and electric power plant example.
Part 2b: Solver-Based Linear Programming Solve a linear program using Optimization Toolbox solvers, using a steam and electric power plant example.
Part 3: Problem-Based Mixed-Integer Linear Programming Through a steel blending example, you will learn how to solve a mixed-integer linear program using Optimization Toolbox solvers and a problem-based approach.
