Ein allgemeines Dekompositionsverfahren fuer lineare Optimierungsprobleme
[A General Decomposition Algorithm for Linear Optimization Problems]
A Really GENERAL Decomposition Algorithm for Very Large Linear Optimization Problems Proven theory as Regards Optimality and Finality Advantageous for very large problems with a rather small percentage of real variables in the optimal solution - Simplex method is used as a calculating sub-routine - NO SPECIAL STRUCTURE OF MATRIX REQUIRED - Method applicable without change for non-structures as well as for any and all structures of matrix. Maximum necessary problem size to be calculated with simplex method procedure: a bit more than a matrix of optimal-solution original variables and optimal solution restrictions - single-stage or double-stage decomposition possible - parametric-programming-similar re-calculations possible. For consultancy on slight extensions in theory as well as on important extensions in calculation tactics you may contact Dr. Hergen Heinemann: Hergen.Heinemann"et"alumni.insead.edu Detailed ABSTRACT of Theory (1) From the total problem matrix (TPM) partial problems (PP) are taken arbitrarily, but every variable should be represented in at least one of them. (2) PPA´s are equipped with suitable functions for optimization and are optimized with the simplex method procedure. (3) The optimized solutions of the PPA´s serve to obtain variables for an auxiliary problem (AP), which is then optimized to reflect an optimal combination of the optimized PP`s. (4) With the optimal dual values of the AP the actual values for every variable of the to-be-optimized function of the TPM are calculated. (5) With the actual values for every variable of the to-be-optimized function of the TPM a test is done to check whether the optimal solution of the TPM is already reached. (6) Is the optimum solution of the TPM reached, then the algorithm is at the end. If not, the algorithm continues with item (2) above with a new set of variables and using the actual values of the variables of the to-be-optimized function as per item (3), starting a new cycle of the algorithm.
