A Solver for Mixed-Integer Bilevel Linear Problems
Keyword: Mathematical Optimization
Functional Description: Bilevel optimization problems are very challenging optimization models arising in many important practical contexts, including pricing mechanisms in the energy sector, airline and telecommunication industry, transportation networks, optimal expansion of gas networks, critical infrastructure defense, and machine learning. In this software, we present a new general purpose branch-and-cut framework for the exact solution of mixed-integer bilevel linear programs (MIBLP), which constitute a very significant subfamily of bilevel optimization problems.
