Welcome to the MINLP World!

MINLP World is a forum for discussion and dissemination of information about all aspects of Mixed Integer Nonlinear Programming (MINLP).

MINLP models are models that combine combinatorial aspects with nonlinearities. MINLP models are much more difficult than both Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MIP) and Nonlinear Programming (NLP) models.

MINLP is still a new field, and we cannot yet solve all the problems that naturally fall within this area. It is the purpose of this site to bring people that work with MINLP together. We are interested in practical software (MINLP Solvers), testing, comparison, and quality of solvers (MINLPLib), research in both solution methods and in good model formulations, and in improving the communication between people interested in these topics (Gams World Forum).
