Plasmo.jl and MadNLP.jl-A Framework for Graph-Based Optimization

07/28/2023, 7:20 PM — 7:30 PM UTC

Many optimization problems can be represented as a graph to provide useful visualization and to allow for manipulating and exploiting problem structure. We use Plasmo.jl (which extends JuMP.jl) to build optimization problems within a graph structure (where optimization model components are stored within the nodes and edges of the graph), and we use the nonlinear interior-point solver, MadNLP.jl, to solve these models and exploit some of these graph structures.
