Folio - Examples from 'Getting Started'

Different versions of a portfolio optimization problem.

Basic modelling and solving tasks:
  • modeling and solving a small LP problem (foliolp, using variable arrays: folioarr)
  • performing explicit initialization (folioinit*)
  • data input from file, index sets (foliodata, requires foliocpplp.dat)
  • modeling and solving a small MIP problem with binary variables (foliomip1)
  • modeling and solving a small MIP problem with semi-continuous variables (foliomip2)
  • modeling and solving QP and MIQP problems (folioqp, requires foliocppqp.dat)
  • modeling and solving QCQP problems (folioqc, requires foliocppqp.dat)
  • heuristic solution of a MIP problem (folioheur)
Advanced modeling and solving tasks:
  • enlarged version of the basic MIP model (foliomip3 with include file readfoliodata.c_, to be used with data sets folio5.cdat, folio10.cdat)
  • defining an integer solution callback (foliocb)
  • using the MIP solution pool (foliosolpool)
  • using the solution enumerator (folioenumsol)
  • handling infeasibility through deviation variables (folioinfeas)
  • retrieving IIS (folioiis, foliomiis)
  • using the built-in infeasibility repair functionality (foliorep)
Further explanation of this example: 'Getting Started with BCL' for the basic modelling and solving tasks; 'Advanced Evaluators Guide' for solution enumeration and infeasibilit handling
