### gc_pwl_cs.cs

/* Copyright 2020, Gurobi Optimization, LLC

This example formulates and solves the following simple model
with PWL constraints:

maximize
sum c[j] * x[j]
subject to
sum A[i,j] * x[j] <= 0,  for i = 0, ..., m-1
sum y[j] <= 3
y[j] = pwl(x[j]),        for j = 0, ..., n-1
x[j] free, y[j] >= 0,    for j = 0, ..., n-1
where pwl(x) = 0,     if x  = 0
= 1+|x|, if x != 0

Note
1. sum pwl(x[j]) <= b is to bound x vector and also to favor sparse x vector.
Here b = 3 means that at most two x[j] can be nonzero and if two, then
sum x[j] <= 1
2. pwl(x) jumps from 1 to 0 and from 0 to 1, if x moves from negative 0 to 0,
then to positive 0, so we need three points at x = 0. x has infinite bounds
on both sides, the piece defined with two points (-1, 2) and (0, 1) can
extend x to -infinite. Overall we can use five points (-1, 2), (0, 1),
(0, 0), (0, 1) and (1, 2) to define y = pwl(x)
