We examine a multidimensional optimisation problem in the tropical mathematics setting. The problem involves the minimisation of a nonlinear function defined on a finite-dimensional semimodule over an idempotent semifield subject to linear inequality constraints. We start with an overview of known tropical optimisation problems with linear and nonlinear(More)
An unconstrained optimization problem is formulated in terms of tropical mathematics to minimize a functional that is defined on a vector set by a matrix and calculated through multiplicative conjugate transposition. For some particular cases, the minimum in the problem is known to be equal to the tropical spectral radius of the matrix. We examine the(More)
A multidimensional optimization problem is considered, which is formulated in terms of tropical mathematics as to minimize a non-linear objective function subject to linear inequality constraints. The optimization problem is motivated by a problem in project scheduling when an optimal schedule is given by minimizing the flow time of activities in a project(More)
We consider optimization problems that are formulated and solved in the framework of tropical mathematics. The problems consist in minimizing or maximizing functionals defined on vectors of finite-dimensional semimodules over idempotent semifields, and may involve constraints in the form of linear equations and inequalities. The objective function can be(More)
A new multidimensional optimization problem is considered in the tropical mathematics setting. The problem is to minimize a nonlinear function defined on a finite-dimensional semimodule over an idempotent semi-field and given by a conjugate transposition operator. A special case of the problem, which arises in just-in-time scheduling, serves as a motivation(More)
Minimax single facility location problems in multidimensional space with Chebyshev distance are examined within the framework of idempotent algebra. The aim of the study is twofold: first, to give a new algebraic solution to the location problems, and second, to extend the area of application of idempotent algebra. A new algebraic approach based on(More)
Both unconstrained and constrained minimax single facility location problems are considered in multidimensional space with Chebyshev distance. A new solution approach is proposed within the framework of idempotent algebra to reduce the problems to solving linear vector equations and minimizing functionals defined on some idempotent semimodule. The approach(More)
We examine two multidimensional optimization problems that are formulated in terms of tropical mathematics. The problems are to minimize nonlinear objective functions, which are defined through the multiplicative conjugate vector transposition on vectors of a finite-dimensional semimodule over an idempotent semifield, and subject to boundary constraints.(More)
A multidimensional optimization problem is formulated in the tropical mathematics setting as to maximize a nonlinear objective function, which is defined through a multiplicative conjugate transposition operator on vectors in a finite-dimensional semimodule over a general idempotent semifield. The study is motivated by problems drawn from project(More)
