Hello Everybody
This might seem very simple but I’m new to GAMS.
I want to write a binary variable in my model.
Suppose X(i,j) is the binary variable, I want to define it this way:
X(i,j)=1 if Y(i,j)>=1 or Y(j,i)>=1
X(i,j)=0 if Y(i,j)=0 or Y(j,i)=0
How should I write it in GAMS
Thanks a lot.
\
Hi,
I think you need to declare it as binary variable first, then use what ever is you conditions, i.e in GAMS
Binary Variable X(i,j) some descriptions;
then write the conditions…

Yeah, I know I should write the conditions but what should I write?!!
I mean can anybody write the codes here. I write it again:

X(i,j)=0 if Y(i,j)=0 or Y(j,i)=0

Ali, the conditions are a bit strange and contradicting:
what happens if Y(i,j)==1 && Y(i,j)==0
then according to the first constraint you have X(i,j)=1
and according to the next one you have X(i,j)=0
are you sure the set is correct?
Otherwise, depending on what kind of solver you used there, in
general, such constratinst can be epressed differently.
E.g. in cplex you can make use of indicators.

Dear Shahin I don’t understand what you mean.
X(i,j) is a binary variable and Y(i,j) is an integer variable. For any
Y(i,j) or Y(j,i) which is greater or equal to 1, our binary variable
X(i,j) must be 1 and for Y(i,j) or Y(j,i) equal to 0 the binary
variable should be equal to 0 too.
You say what happens if Y(i,j)=1, then according to the first
statement X(i,j)=1

Ali,
Lets clarify the things here:
if Y(i,j)==1 && Y(i,j)==0 then we have:
 (Y(i,j)>= 1 or Y(j,i) >=1) is true and therefore X(i,j) must
be 1,
at the same time:
 (Y(i,j) ==0 or Y(j,i)==0 ) is true and therefore X(i,j) must
be 0
Am I doing something wrong here?

well this is a modelling question not much to do with gams:
X(i,j)=1 if Y(i,j)>=1 or Y(j,i)>=1
converts to
X(i,j) = 1 and make it zero once both are zero.

this lets your X moves to its upper bound if needed once either of Ys

Well this is the objective function which guides your X to take 1 “if

You don’t have to worry about it.
I dont know any linear form that fulfills your wish.
Are you doing feasibility problem or optimization with an objective?

Ali,
If the objective function does not push X in one direction you need
more
than one constraint.
To keep things simpler forget about the indices and have the example
if (Y1=1 or Y2=1) then X=1 else X=0.
You can write the following (this may not be the unique or best way
for
your problem, but works)

Y1 in {0,1}, Y2 in {0,1}, X in [0,1]

X= Y1
which ensures that X=1 if Y1=1
if Y1=0 the constraint becomes redundant X>=0

X>= Y2
which ensures that X=1 if Y2=1
if Y2=0 the constraint becomes redundant X>=0
In general there are wellestablished techniques to write this type of
constraints. Have a look at the following links to see how we used
such
techniques in problems involving reaction networks
http://dx.doi.org/10.1186/175205095107
http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1000591
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.combustflame.2008.03.004
We cite some of the old work dealing with these techniques.

Well, perhaps I understood it wrong but I guess Y is integer non
necessarily binary.
Okay, I was extremely busy and brain was not working when I wrote the
last post.
There is indeed a linear way to do that but of course nut of numerical
interest.
introduce g(i,j)as binary variable, f(i,j) as binary and M a big
constant.
Y(i,j) = g(i,j)
f(i,j) >= g(j,i)
x(i,j) = f(i,j)
I hope I haven’t done any mistake here. otherwise you will find it.

Y1 in {0,1}, Y2 in {0,1}, X in [0,1]

my friend, if it does not make you objective better then leave it to
be any thing as long as it does not cut off part of your feasible
region.
have you ever though why most of MIP are extremely challenging for
solvers? why people designed different customized B&B rules? . Because
the know such behaviors and they just dont want to leave it to a
generic MIP solver to spend time on it blindly.
Only for very few class of problems an ideal formulation is known
which is tight and … as you wish.

With these constraints X(i,j) would be equal to 1 for all the Y(i,j)s.
So what’s the point of defining a binary variable if it is gonna be 1
all the time. Instead of that I could simply define it as a parameter
X(i,j)=1!

You don’t have to worry about it.
I dont know any linear form that fulfills your wish.
Are you doing feasibility problem or optimization with an objective?

this lets your X moves to its upper bound if needed once either of Ys
is >= 1 and make it zero once both are zero.
Does it solve your problem?

Thank you, I made a mistake in defining it
it must be this way:
X(i,j)=1 if Y(i,j)>=1 or Y(j,i)>=1
X(i,j)=0 if Y(i,j)=Y(j,i)=0
Now how should I write this code in GAMS?
I think it’s a tough work.

Y(i,j) is either 1 or 2 or 3 or 0 or any other integer.

Dear Shahin I don’t understand what you mean.
X(i,j) is a binary variable and Y(i,j) is an integer variable. For any
Y(i,j) or Y(j,i) which is greater or equal to 1, our binary variable
X(i,j) must be 1 and for Y(i,j) or Y(j,i) equal to 0 the binary
variable should be equal to 0 too.
You say what happens if Y(i,j)=1, then according to the first
statement X(i,j)=1

Ali, the conditions are a bit strange and contradicting:

are you sure the set is correct?
Otherwise, depending on what kind of solver you used there, in
general, such constratinst can be epressed differently.
E.g. in cplex you can make use of indicators.

well, then I would suggest you to consult with a book on linear
programming.

With these constraints X(i,j) would be equal to 1 for all the Y(i,j)s.
So what’s the point of defining a binary variable if it is gonna be 1
all the time. Instead of that I could simply define it as a parameter
X(i,j)=1!

my friend, if it does not make you objective better then leave it to
be any thing as long as it does not cut off part of your feasible
region.
have you ever though why most of MIP are extremely challenging for
solvers? why people designed different customized B&B rules? . Because
the know such behaviors and they just dont want to leave it to a
generic MIP solver to spend time on it blindly.
Only for very few class of problems an ideal formulation is known
which is tight and … as you wish.
Dont be that obsessive, take that and make use of it. Your feasible
region is contained here.

in case both Y(i,j) and Y(j,i) are 0, in the first two constraints

Okay, I was extremely busy and brain was not working when I wrote the
last post.
There is indeed a linear way to do that but of course nut of numerical
interest.
introduce g(i,j)as binary variable, f(i,j) as binary and M a big
constant.
Y(i,j) >>> > > > > Y(j,i) >>> > > > > f(i,j) >= g(i,j)
f(i,j) >= g(j,i)
x(i,j) = f(i,j)
I hope I haven’t done any mistake here. otherwise you will find it.

Ali,
If the objective function does not push X in one direction you need
more
than one constraint.
To keep things simpler forget about the indices and have the example
if (Y1=1 or Y2=1) then X=1 else X=0.
You can write the following (this may not be the unique or best way
for
your problem, but works)
 Y1 in {0,1}, Y2 in {0,1}, X in [0,1]
 X>>>> > > > > > which ensures that X=0 if both Y1 and Y2 are 0.
if either Y1=1 or Y2=1 the constraint becomes redundant X>>>> > > > > > if both Y1=1 and Y2=1 the constraint becomes redundant X >
 X>= Y1
which ensures that X=1 if Y1=1
if Y1=0 the constraint becomes redundant X>=0
 X>= Y2
which ensures that X=1 if Y2=1
if Y2=0 the constraint becomes redundant X>=0
In general there are wellestablished techniques to write this type of
constraints. Have a look at the following links to see how we used
such
techniques in problems involving reaction networkshttp://dx.doi.org/10.1186/175205095107http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/jo…
