gilp package¶
gilp.simplex module¶
Linear and integer program solver.
This module defines an LP class. LPs can be solved through an implementation of phase I and the revised simplex method. Furthermore, integer solutions can be obtained through an implementation of the branch and bound algorithm.

LP
¶ Bases:
object
Maintains the coefficents and size of a linear program (LP).
The LP class maintains the coefficents of a linear program. If initialized in standard inequality form, both standard equality and inequality form are maintained. Otherwise, only standard equality form is maintained. Hence, if equality is True, the attributes A, b, and c are None.

get_basic_feasible_sol
(B: List[int], feas_tol: float = 1e07) → gilp.simplex.bfs¶ Return the basic feasible solution corresponding to this basis.
By definition, B is a basis iff A_B is invertible (where A is the matrix of coefficents in standard equality form). The corresponding basic solution x satisfies A_Bx = b. By definition, x is a basic feasible solution iff x satisfies both A_Bx = b and x > 0. These constraints must be satisfied to a tolerance of feas_tol (which is set to 1e7 by default).
Parameters:  B (List[int]) – A list of indices in {0..(n+m1)} forming a basis.
 feas_tol (float) – Primal feasibility tolerance (1e7 by default).
Returns: Basic feasible solution corresponding to the basis B.
Return type: BFS
Raises: InvalidBasis

get_basic_feasible_solns
() → List[gilp.simplex.bfs]¶ Return all the basic feasible solutions.
Returns: List of basic feasible solutions. Return type: List[BFS]

get_coefficients
(equality: bool = True)¶ Returns the coefficents describing this LP.
If equality is True (defaults to True), then return standard equality coefficents. Otherwise, return standard inequality coefficents. Also returns the dimensions of m*n matrix A.

get_tableau
(B: List[int]) → numpy.ndarray¶ Return the tableau corresponding to the basis B for this LP.
The returned tableau has the following form:
z  (c_N^T  y^TA_N)x_N = y^Tb where y^T = c_B^TA_B^(1) x_B + A_B^(1)A_Nx_N = x_B^* where x_B^* = A_B^(1)b
Parameters: B (List[int]) – A valid basis for this LP Returns: A numpy array representing the tableau Return type: np.ndarray Raises: InvalidBasis
– Invalid basis. A_B is not invertible.

get_vertices
() → numpy.ndarray¶ Return the vertices of this inequality LP’s feasible region.
Returns: Vertices of the LP’s feasible region. Return type: np.ndarray Raises: ValueError
– The LP must be in standard inequality form.


gilp.simplex.
simplex
()¶ Execute the revised simplex method on the given LP.
Execute the revised simplex method on the given LP using the specified pivot rule. If a valid initial basic feasible solution is given, use it as the initial bfs. Otherwise, ignore it. If an iteration limit is given, terminate if the specified limit is reached. Output the current solution and indicate the solution may not be optimal. Use a primal feasibility tolerance of feas_tol (with default vlaue of 1e7).
PIVOT RULES
Entering variable:
 ‘bland’ or ‘min_index’: minimum index
 ‘dantzig’ or ‘max_reduced_cost’: most positive reduced cost
 ‘greatest_ascent’: most positive (minimum ratio) x (reduced cost)
 ‘manual’ or ‘manual_select’: user selects possible entering index
Leaving variable:
 (All): minimum (positive) ratio (minimum index to tie break)
Parameters:  lp (LP) – LP on which to run simplex
 pivot_rule (str) – Pivot rule to be used. ‘bland’ by default.
 initial_solution (Union[np.ndarray, List, Tuple]) – Initial bfs.

 optimal (bool): True if x is optimal. False otherwise.
 path (List[BFS]): Path of simplex.
Return type: Tuple
Raises: ValueError
– Iteration limit must be strictly positive.ValueError
– initial_solution should have shape (n,1) but was ().

branch_and_bound
(lp: gilp.simplex.LP, manual: bool = False, feas_tol: float = 1e07, int_feas_tol: float = 1e07) → Tuple[numpy.ndarray, float]¶ Execute branch and bound on the given LP.

gilp.visualize module¶
Functions to visualize the simplex and branch and bound algorithms.
This moodule uses a custom implementation of the resvised simplex method and the branch and bound algorithm (simplex module) to create and solve LPs. Using the graphic module (which provides a highlevel interface with the plotly visualization package) and computational geometry functions from the geometry module, visualizations of these algorithms are then created to be viewed inline on a Jupyter Notebook or written to a static HTML file.
