  • Give the definition of solution of an optimization problem

    A solution to an optimization problem is a collection of values of the decision variables.
  • Give the definition of feasible region of an optimization problem

    The feasible region of an optimization problem is the set of feasible solutions to the problem.
  • Give the definition of unbounded problem of an optimization problem

    An optimization problem is unbouded if for any feasible solution x, there exists another feasible solution y whose value is better than the value of x. It has no finite optimal solution.
  • Give the definition of infeasible problem of an optimization problem

    A mathematical program is infeasible if there are no feasible solutions. No solution that satisfies all constraints and bounds.
  • What is the proportionality assumption of linear programming?

    The assumption that when it takes 3 eggs to make 1 chocolate cake. It takes 9 eggs to make 3 chocolate cakes.

    This assumption has to hold to be able to apply linear programming.
  • What is meant with the divisibility assumption?

    A variable can be infinitely divisible and still have meaning.
  • When are problems called discrete or combinatorial optimization problems?

    When all the variables are binary.
  • What is meant with a static and a dynamic model?

    In a static model the decision variables do not involve a sequence of decisions over multiple periods. In a dynamic model the decision variables do involve sequences of decisions over multiple periods.
  • What is meant with deterministic and stochastic models?

    In a deterministic problem the value of the objective function and whether or not the constraints are satisfied is known with certainty. Otherwise stochastic.
  • What is the isocost line?

    The line on which you can find an optimal solution considering a minimization problem.
