WHAT IS BiCePS?
BiCePS is one of the libraries that make up the CHiPPS (COIN High Performance Parallel Search Framework) library hierarchy. It implements that data-handling functions needed to support development of many types of relaxation-based branch-and-bound algorithms, especially for solving mathematical programs. It is intended to capture the implementation of methods common to all such algorithms without assuming anything about the structure of the mathematical program or the bounding method used. BLIS, which is another layer built on top of BiCePS, is a concretization of Bcps for the case of mixed integer linear programs. DIP is another implementation being developed using BLIS that implements a decomposition-based bounding procedure.
PROJECT WEB PAGE
The html documentation of the classes in BiCePS (See INSTALL file) can be created. A user's guide that is under preparation that can help with running or customizing BiCePS.
Please see the INSTALL file for a guide to install Bcps.

- Bug Reports and Other Issues
Bug reports should be reported on the CHiPPS GitHub web site at
