I am a full-time consultant and provide services related to the design, implementation and deployment of mathematical programming, optimization and data-science applications. I also teach courses and workshops. Usually I cannot blog about projects I am doing, but there are many technical notes I'd like to share. Not in the least so I have an easy way to search and find them again myself. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The StructJuMP package provides a parallel algebraic modeling framework for block structured optimization models in Julia. StructJuMP, originally known as StochJuMP, is tailored to two-stage stochastic optimization problems and uses MPI to enable a parallel, distributed memory instantiation of the problem. StructJuMP.jl is an extension of theJuMP.jlpackage, which is as fast asAMPLand faster than any other modeling tools such asGAMSandPyomo(seethis).
Problems modeled in StructJuMP models can be solved in parallel using thePIPS-NLPparallel optimization solver. In addition, StructJuMP models can be solved (in serial only) usingIpopt. The solver interface and glue code for PIPS-NLP and Ipopt are located atStructJuMPSolverInterface.
