Approximate multi-parametric programming based B&B algorithm for MINLPs

Abstract

In this work an improved B&B algorithm for MINLPs is proposed. The basic idea of the proposed algorithm is to treat binary variables as parameters and obtain the solution of the resulting multi-parametric NLP (mp-NLP) as a function of the binary variables, relaxed as continuous variables, at the root node of the search tree. It is recognized that solving… (More)
