MACROS 4.1 Release
DATADVANCE development team is pleased to announce the release of MACROS 4.1, the next stable version of the MACROS library and featured plug-ins.
This release adds a new type of the support for solving mixed integer linear problems. Single-objective problems with a mix of integer and continuous variables can now be solved without using the Surrogate-Based Optimization (SBO) method, provided that all objectives and constraints are linear functions. In previous versions, SBO was the only method that provided the support for mixed integer problems, thanks to the corresponding update in MACROS 3.0.
The overall performance of the MACROS optimization solver has also increased thanks to significant improvements in internal algorithms – in particular, the methods to solve saddle point systems and quadratic problems.
