Complete mixed integer linear programming formulations for modularity density based clustering

Modularity density maximization is a clustering method that improves some issues of the commonly-used modularity maximization approach. Recently, some Mixed-Integer Linear Programming (MILP) reformulations have been proposed in the literature for the modularity density maximization problem, but they require as input the solution of a set of auxiliary binary Non-Linear Programs (NLPs). These can become … Read more

Satisficing Models under Uncertainty

Satisficing, as an approach to decision-making under uncertainty, aims at achieving solutions that satisfy the problem’s constraints as well as possible. Mathematical optimization problems that are related to this form of decision-making include the P-model of Charnes and Cooper (1963). In this paper, we propose a general framework of satisficing decision criteria, and show a … Read more
