The GOP Approach : Distributed Implementation

  • Christodoulos A. Floudas
Part of the Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications book series (NOIA, volume 37)


In this chapter, we discuss the parallel implementation of the GOP algorithm, as studied by Androulakis et al. (1996), and we present distributed computing results for indefinite quadratic programming problems and for large-scale pooling problems that arise in chemical refineries. Section 7.1 focuses on the critical components of the distributed implementation of the GOP approach. Section 7.2 presents the computational results for large-scale indefinite quadratic problems. Finally, section 7.3 discusses the computational performance of the parallel GOP approach for large-scale blending and pooling problems.
