Try this example to learn how to use mathematical optimization to tackle a common, but critical agricultural pricing problem: Determining the prices and demand for a country’s dairy products in order to maximize total revenue derived from the sales of those products. You will learn how to model this problem as a quadratic optimization problem using the Gurobi Python API and solve it using the Gurobi Optimizer.
This model is example 21 from the fifth edition of Model Building in Mathematical Programming by H. Paul Williams on pages 276-278 and 333-335.
This modeling example is at the intermediate level, where we assume that you know Python and are familiar with the Gurobi Python API. In addition, you should have some knowledge about building mathematical optimization models.
