Modifiable: No

Together, attributes FarkasDual and FarkasProof provide a certificate of the infeasibility of the given problem.

They are a solution to the following system:

\begin{displaymath}\bar{a}x = \lambda^tAx \leq \lambda^tb = -\beta + \sum\limits...
...{a}_j<0}\bar{a}_iU_j + \sum\limits_{i:\bar{a}_j>0}\bar{a}_jL_j,\end{displaymath}

where <span>$</span>L_j<span>$</span> is the lower bound of variable <span>$</span>x_j<span>$</span>, <span>$</span>U_j<span>$</span> is the upper bound of variable <span>$</span>x_j<span>$</span>, <span>$</span>\lambda_i \geq 0<span>$</span> if the <span>$</span>i<span>$</span>-th constraint has a <span>$</span>\leq<span>$</span> sense, <span>$</span>\lambda_i \leq 0<span>$</span> if the <span>$</span>i<span>$</span>-th constraint has a <span>$</span>\geq<span>$</span> sense, <span>$</span>\bar{a}_j \geq 0<span>$</span> if <span>$</span>U_j = \infty<span>$</span>, and <span>$</span>\bar{a}_j
\leq 0<span>$</span> if <span>$</span>L_j = -\infty<span>$</span>.

The FarkasProof correspond to <span>$</span>\beta<span>$</span>, and FarkasDual correspond to <span>$</span>\lambda<span>$</span> in the system above.

Note that any solution to the system above, with <span>$</span>\beta>0<span>$</span>, provides an infeasible constraint, <span>$</span>\bar{a}x\leq\lambda^tb<span>$</span>, derived from the set of original constraints and bounds. Also, the proof is independent of the objective function and of the model sense of the problem at hand.
