### Re: The good source for learning ScenRed

Hi, If you want to learn the tool SCENRED/SCENRED2 for scenario reduction take a look at the documentation of the tool (see SCENRED documentation and SCENRED2 documentation ). The documentation also provides you with a short description of the algorithms used and references of papers the tool is bas...

### How do I formulate logical expressions in equations?

GAMS does not reformulate logical expressions. You need to do this by hand. A common way to model logical expressions is using the so-called big-M method. The interested reader is referred to the book by H.P. Williams on Model Building in Mathematical Programming. It explains how to use the big-M me...

### Linearize a nonlinear function using piecewise linear approximation

Find below some approaches to linearize the cubic function y =e= x*sqr(x) - 7*sqr(x) + 14*x - 8 using piecewise linear approximation. In general, piecewise linear functions can be modeled using binary variables, SOS1 type formulations or SOS2 type formulations. Check textbooks like Nemhauser and Wol...

### How to reference GAMS in a paper?

This post contains some information on how to give a proper reference to the GAMS software and the GAMS documentation in a (scientific) paper. Since the software and the documentation changes with every release, it is a good idea to include the release number XX.Y.Z. A particular release has a publi...

### Re: Domain violation for set

Looking at your .gms file I see that you declared IOT30 over the domains (RIOT, CIOT ). PS1 is an alias to PS which is a subset of RIOT not CIOT, therefore the domain violation occurs for xx(PS,PS1) = IOT30(PS, PS1 ); and VI(FI,PS1) = IOT30(FI, PS1 ); (PS1 is the wrong domain here given how you decl...

### Re: How do I implement a "lookup-table"?FAQ

Please have a look at the code below. The second model requires a decent GAMS/CPLEX license: set i / 1*4 / s / 1*5 / table data(s,*) 1 2 3 4 val 1 0 1 1 0 23 2 1 0 0 1 -5 3 1 0 1 0 16 4 0 1 0 1 4 5 1 1 1 0 111 ; parameter c(i) "cost of i when on"; c(i) = -uniformInt(1,10); display c; variable b(i) "...

### How do I implement a "lookup-table"?FAQ

In my case the determinant is the summation of the variables from U1 to Ux that have been introduced as a binary variable to GAMS. In each iteration during the optimization these variables are set to 0 or 1 but the structure of these variables should be considered in the optimization process, for ex...

### Re: Scenario Reduction

Hi paganini, Can you say more specifically where you got confused reading the documenation of SCENRED2 and what it is you are confused about? You might want to check out the simplified interface to SCENRED2 . You need to specify n the set of nodes in the tree, tree the set of ancestor relations desc...
