The problem of integer programming (IP) refers to a problem in which some or all variables must take integer values. In the case when the constraints and the objective function are linear dependence problem is called an integer linear programming problem. Otherwise, if at least one non-linear dependence will be, it will be the integer nonlinear programming problem.
Of particular interest to the problems of the IP due to the fact that in many practical problems, we need to find an integer solution due to a discrete series of values of the variables. In the Continue reading...
