Gurobi model object. Commonly used methods include addVar (adds a new decision variable to the model), addConstr (adds a new constraint to the model), optimize (optimizes the current model), and get (retrieves the value of an attribute).

While the Java garbage collector will eventually collect an unused GRBModel object, the vast majority of the memory associated with a model is stored outside of the Java heap. As a result, the garbage collector can't see this memory usage, and thus it can't take this quantity into account when deciding whether collection is necessary. We recommend that you call GRBModel.dispose when you are done using a model.
