Solving the quadratic assignment problem by means of general purpose mixed integer linear programming solvers

The Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP) can be solved by linearization, where one formulates the QAP as a mixed integer linear programming (MILP) problem. On the one hand, most of these linearization are tight, but hardly exploited within a reasonable computing time because of their size. On the other hand, Kaufman and Broeckx formulation [1] is … Read more
