GNU Linear Programming Kit

The GNU Linear Programming Kit (GLPK) is a software package intended for solving large-scale linear programming (LP), mixed integer programming (MIP), and other related problems. It is a set of routines written in ANSI C and organized in the form of a callable library. The package is part of the GNU Project and is released under the GNU General Public License.

Problems can be modeled in the language GNU MathProg which shares many parts of the syntax with AMPL and solved with standalone solver GLPSOL.

GLPK can also be used as a C library.

GLPK uses the revised simplex method and the primal-dual interior point method for non-integer problems and the branch-and-bound algorithm together with Gomory's mixed integer cuts for (mixed) integer problems.

GLPK is supported in the free edition of the OptimJ modeling system

An independent project provides a Java-based interface to GLPK (via JNI). This allows Java applications to call out to GLPK in a relatively transparent manner.

Famous quotes containing the word programming:

    If there is a price to pay for the privilege of spending the early years of child rearing in the driver’s seat, it is our reluctance, our inability, to tolerate being demoted to the backseat. Spurred by our success in programming our children during the preschool years, we may find it difficult to forgo in later states the level of control that once afforded us so much satisfaction.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)
