Global Nonlinear Mixed-Integer Optimization

Peerless

Peerless is a software for solving optimization problems where the functions can be nonlinear, non-convex, discontinuous or non-differentiable; variables can be continuous, integer or binary. It supports a wide range of problems and constraints, and we’re working on supporting more problem types, constraints and use cases.

The algorithm is offered as a service using a Python API that produces concise and readable models with the power and flexibility provided by Python. The public service is free with no size limitations on the problems and the paid subscription is scalable to fit your needs.

AML-like Python API

Models written in the Peerless API are readable and similar to an Algebraic Modelling Language:

>> model = mdl.Model("AML-like")
>> x = mdl.Variable(model, "x", 0, 10)
>> y = mdl.Variable(model, "y", 0, 10)
>> mdl.Minimize(model, "objective", (2*x - 3.4*mdl.sqrt(y))**4)
>> model.add_constraint((x-5)**2 + (y-5)**2 <= 4, "ct1")
>> result = solver.solve(model, parameters, environment)
