Truls Flatberg is a researcher at the research institute SINTEF. With a background from applied mathematics and informatics, he develops decision support tools for industrial problems based on optimization models.
This talk will present the package UnitJuMP that allows the user to include units when modelling optimization problems in JuMP. Both variables and constraints can have specified units, as well as parameters involved in objective and constraints. If different units are combined, functionality in Unitful is used to check for compatibility and perform automatic conversions.
