0.1 Algorithm choice

algorithm: Choice of the algorithm.
This will preset some of the options of bonmin depending on the algorithm choice. The default value for this string option is ”B-BB”.
Possible values:

0.2 Branch-and-bound options

allowable_fraction_gap: Specify the value of relative gap under which the algorithm stops.
Stop the tree search when the gap between the objective value of the best known solution and the best bound on the objective of any solution is less than this fraction of the absolute value of the best known solution value.

enable_dynamic_nlp: Enable dynamic linear and quadratic rows addition in nlp

nlp_failure_behavior: Set the behavior when an NLP or a series of NLP are unsolved by Ipopt (we call unsolved an NLP for which Ipopt is not able to guarantee optimality within the specified tolerances).
If set to ”fathom”, the algorithm will fathom the node when Ipopt fails to find a solution to the nlp at that node within the specified tolerances. The algorithm then becomes a heuristic, and the user will be warned that the solution might not be optimal. The default value for this string option is ”stop”.

Set the number of variables on which to do strong branching. The valid range for this integer option is 0 number_strong_branch < +inf and its default value is 20.

For Debugging purposes only. The default value for this string option is ”no”.
Possible values:

value 0 deactivates option The valid range for this integer option is 0 solution_limit < +inf and its default value is 2147483647.

variable_selection: Chooses variable selection strategy
The default value for this string option is ”strong-branching”.

The valid range for this integer option is 0 ecp_max_rounds < +inf and its default value is 5.

0.4 Feasibility checker using OA cuts

feas_check_cut_types: Choose the type of cuts generated when an integer feasible solution is found
If it seems too much memory is used should try Benders to use less The default value for this string option is ”outer-approx”.
Possible values:

feas_check_discard_policy: How cuts from feasibility checker are discarded
Normally to avoid cycle cuts from feasibility checker should not be discarded in the node where they are generated. However Cbc sometimes does it if no care is taken which can lead to an infinite loop in Bonmin (usually on simple problems). To avoid this one can instruct Cbc to never discard a cut but if we do that for all cuts it can lead to memory problems. The default policy here is to detect cycles and only then impose to Cbc to keep the cut. The two other alternative are to instruct Cbc to keep all cuts or to just ignore the problem and hope for the best The default value for this string option is ”detect-cycles”.
Possible values:

generate_benders_after_so_many_oa: Specify that after so many oa cuts have been generated Benders cuts should be generated instead.
It seems that sometimes generating too many oa cuts slows down the optimization compared to Benders due to the size of the LP. With this option we specify that after so many OA cuts have been generated we should switch to Benders cuts. The valid range for this integer option is 0 generate_benders_after_so_many_oa < +inf and its default value is 5000.
