Automatic Reformulations for Convex Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Optimization: Perspective and Separability

Tight reformulations of combinatorial optimization problems like Convex Mixed-Integer Nonlinear Programs (MINLPs) enable one to solve these problems faster by obtaining tight bounds on the optimal value. We consider two techniques for reformulation: perspective reformulation and separability detection. We develop routines for the automatic detection of problem structures suitable for these reformulations and implement new … Read more
