LSModel Class

class

Mathematical optimization model.

A model is composed of expressions (some of which are decisions), organized as a tree. Then, some expressions of the model can be constrained or optimized. Once your optimization model is created and closed, the solver can be launched to resolve it. Note that you cannot modify a model which has been closed: you must reopen it (with open()) or instantiate another LocalSolver environment to optimize another model.

Functions

LSExpression localsolver::LSModel::createConstant(lsint value)

Creates a constant expression representing the given value.

Only allowed in state S_Modeling. Note that if a constant has been already created with the same value, this method can return the same expression, but it is not guaranteed. The exact behavior is implementation defined.

Return:Created constant expression.
Parameters:value - Value of the constant.

LSExpression localsolver::LSModel::createConstant(lsdouble value)

Creates a constant expression representing the given value.

Only allowed in state S_Modeling. Note that if a constant has been already created with the same value, this method can return the same expression, but it is not guaranteed. The exact behavior is implementation defined.

Return:Created constant expression.
Parameters:value - Value of the constant

template <typename… TN>

Creates an expression of the given type, with the given ordered operands.

Return:

Created expression.

template <typename A>
LSExpression localsolver::LSModel::createLambdaFunction(const A &functor)

Creates a lambda function.

A lambda function is a particular expression composed of two parts:

  • The arguments of the function (which are also LSExpressions of type O_Argument)
  • The body of the function. The body is an LSExpression that will be used to evaluate the result of the function. The body can be any LSExpression composed of any operands and operators supported by LocalSolver. Thus, the body expression can use the arguments of the function but can also capture and refer to expressions declared outside of the function.

You have to provide the body of the function as a std::function (C++ function or lambda). Please note that the provided std::function will not be used directly during the solving process, but will be evaluated once by the API with a number of LSExpression of type O_Argument that corresponds to the number of arguments your std::function expects. The returned LSExpression resulting of this evaluation will be used as the body of the LocalSolver function O_LambdaFunction.

Return:The expression associated to the function.

const

Gets the number of operands in the model.

This corresponds to the number of operands for all expressions declared in the model. It is an analog of the number of non zeros in matrix model encountered in mathematical programming: it gives an hint about the size and the density of your model.

Return:Number of operands.

void localsolver::LSModel::close()

Closes the model.

Only allowed in state S_Modeling. When this method is called, the solver is placed in state S_Stopped.

Once the model is closed, no expressions, constraints or objectives can be added or removed unless the model is reopened. The model must be closed before starting its resolution.

void localsolver::LSModel::open()

Reopens the model.

Only allowed in state S_Stopped. When this method is called, the solver is placed in state S_Modeling.

In this state, the model can be modified: it is possible to add new expressions, constraints or objectives, modify expression operands, and remove existing constraints and objectives. However, existing expressions cannot be deleted.

bool localsolver::LSModel::isClosed()
const

Returns true if the model is closed, false otherwise.

Return:True if the model is closed.

std::string localsolver::LSModel::toString()
const

Returns a string representation of this model.

This representation provides:

  • The number of expressions, decisions, constraints, and objectives.
  • The density of the model. Useful for debugging or logging purposes.

Return:String representation.
