[Webinar] SHOT - The Supporting Hyperplane Optimization Toolkit

Part One of GAMS Introductory Video Series


SHOT (Supporting Hyperplane Optimization Toolkit) is a deterministic solver for mixed-integer nonlinear programming problems (MINLPs). Originally, SHOT was intended for convex MINLP problems only, but now also has functionality to solve nonconvex MINLP problems as a heuristic method without providing guarantees of global optimality. However, SHOT can solve certain nonconvex problem types to global optimality as well.


SHOT has mainly been developed by Andreas Lundell (Åbo Akademi University, Finland) and Jan Kronqvist (Imperial College London, UK). In this session, Jan and Andreas explain the technology behind SHOT, and demonstrate how to use it with GAMS.
