GLPK 4.51 Release Information

Release date: June 19, 2013

GLPK (GNU Linear Programming Kit) is intended for solving large-scale
linear programming (LP), mixed integer linear programming (MIP), and
other related problems. It is a set of routines written in ANSI C89 and
organized as a callable library.

        In this release:

        Singleton and dense phases were implemented on computing
        LU-factorization with Gaussian elimination. The singleton phase
        is a feature that allows processing row and column singletons
        on initial elimination steps more efficiently. The dense phase
        is a feature used on final elimination steps when the active
        submatrix becomes relatively dense. It significantly reduces
        the time taken, especially if the active submatrix fits in CPU
        cache, and improves numerical accuracy due to full pivoting.

        The API routine glp_adv_basis that constructs advanced initial
        LP basis was replaced by an improved version, which (unlike the
        old version) takes into account numerical values of constraint

        The proximity search heuristic for MIP was included in the GLPK
        integer optimizer glp_intopt. On API level the heuristic can be
        enabled by setting the parameter ps_heur in glp_iocp to GLP_ON.
        This feature is also available in the solver glpsol through
        command-line option '--proxy'. Many thanks to Giorgio Sartor
        <address@hidden> for contribution.

        A bug was fixed that caused numerical instability in the FPUMP
