LP_MP is a C++ framework for developing scalable dual (Lagrangean) decomposition based algorithms solvers for a wide range of LP-relaxations to discrete optimization problems. For a theoretical introduction to the techniques used and the class of problems that can be optimized see .
Solvers are provided in separate projects and include
Optimization techniques include
- Messsage passing ,
- Subgradient ascent with a proximal bundle method based on the Frank-Wolfe algorithm , Vladimir Kolmogorov's original implementation.
- An interface to external solvers is provided by DD_ILP.
git clone https://github.com/pawelswoboda/LP_MP.git for downloading, then
cd LP_MP and
git submodule update --init for downloading dependencies
and finallycmake` for building.
- Clang 5.0 or GCC 7.0 upwards for C++17 compatibility.
