Part of the COIN High Performance Parallel Search Framework
BiCePS is one of the libraries that make up the CHiPPS (COIN High Performance Parallel Search Framework) library hierarchy. It implements the data-handling functions needed to support development of many types of relaxation-based branch-and-bound algorithms, especially for solving mathematical programs. It is intended to capture the implementation of methods common to all such algorithms without assuming anything about the structure of the mathematical program or the bounding method used. BLIS, which is another layer built on top of BiCePS, is a concretization of Bcps for the case of mixed integer linear programs. DIP is another implementation being developed using BLIS that implements a decomposition-based bounding procedure.
