This post shows a simple implementation using R to solve a given TSP (Traveling Salesperson Problem) instance using the Pilot Method. The whole R script can be accessed here on my gist. How does the Pilot Method work? The Pilot Method is a construction heuristic to build (i.e. initial) solutions. The method tries to avoid… Read more Solve TSP using Pilot Method

## Calling GUROBI from Matlab

In this post I’ll show you the steps you need to take, if you want to use the powerful GUROBI solver from Matlab in order to solve Mixed Integer Linear Programs. Install the GUROBI Solver Go to the Gurobi website, create an account and download the version applicable for your operating system here. Acquire and… Read more Calling GUROBI from Matlab

## Solve Optimization Tasks using GUROBI Cloud

What is the objective here? I will document the steps needed to setup Gurobi to solve a Linear Program in the cloud. For this example we will use a simple linear model and use Matlab to invoke the locally installed Gurobi solver, which in turn would forward it to a Gurobi Compute Server, which we… Read more Solve Optimization Tasks using GUROBI Cloud

## How to Solve Linear Models in Matlab using GUROBI

There are situations where you might want to use a specific Mathematical Programming solver and you might have to transform the mathematical model to comply with the API specifications of that Solver. Here I want to show you, how to adapt a Linear Model in order to run it within Matlab using the Gurobi solver.… Read more How to Solve Linear Models in Matlab using GUROBI
