UG

UG - Ubiquity Generator framework: UG is a generic framework to parallelize branch-and-bound based solvers (e.g., MIP, MINLP, ExactIP) in a distributed or shared memory computing environment: Exploits powerful performance of state-of-the-art ”base solvers”, such as SCIP, CPLEX, etc. Without the need for base solver parallelization. Base solvers and communication libraries are abstracted within UG. A parallel solver instantiated by UG framework is named: ug[Base solver, Communication libaray]
