Webinar – Solving Bilinear Programming Problems

Practical examples for solving problems to maximize revenue and improve efficiencies

January 28, 2021

8 AM PST / 11:00AM EST

Join Gurobi Optimization for an in-depth review of three Bilinear Programming Problems that are common across many industries. These problems include: Quadratic Programming Problems, Quadratic Assignment Problems, and Mixed Integer Quadratically Constrained Programming Problems. The presentation will provide practical examples for solving problems to maximize revenue and improve efficiencies.

Participants of this webinar will learn and discuss:

  • Implementation of the Bilinear Programming Problems formulation using the Gurobi Python API
  • Traditional linearization approaches to tackle Quadratic Assignment Problems and comparison with direct formulation without linearization
  • A tight formulation of the Pooling Problem
