## [Help-glpk] Creating variables

 From: Seung Mo Gu Subject: [Help-glpk] Creating variables Date: Thu, 1 Apr 2010 21:18:52 +0400

```Hello, I am currently a student working on a scheduling project and
incorporating the use of GLPK. I am having some trouble due to memory
constraints and was wondering how I would go about creating certain variables
(in the case that you know certain values will be zero in optimal solution so
might as well save memory and not consider them in the model). Currently I am
using GUSEK to program this. Here is the portion where I create the variables
as it is now:

/* Decision Variable: Binary: Worker i does Job j before Job k */

var X{i in W,j in J, k in J},binary;

/*Decision Variable: Begnning Times of Each Job*/

var Begin{i in W,j in J},integer,>=0;

Because I #39;m doing this on a large scale problem, many X variables are
generated but I don #39;t need all of them because most will be zero. Is there
a way I can only create certain X and Begin variables given conditions for each
one?

Thank you!
