fromlist ( varlist )

Convert a list of variables into an MVar object. The shape is inferred from the contents of the list - a list of Var objects produces a 1-D MVar object, a list of lists of Var objects produces a 2-D MVar, etc.


varlist: A list of Var objects to populate the returned MVar.

Return value:

MVar object corresponding to the input variables.

Example usage:

  x0 = model.addVar()
  x1 = model.addVar()
  x2 = model.addVar()
  x3 = model.addVar()
  x_1d = MVar.fromlist([x0, x1, x2, x3])  # 1-D MVar
  x_2d = MVar.fromlist([[x0, x1], [x2, x3]])  # 2-D MVar
