let us instead go through the generic MILP setting

ok, ready for review

Should use an LP for this, not an IP.
Also, since input is exact, consider requesting an exact LP solver by using base_ring=QQ
when you set up the MixedIntegerLinearProgram
.

Replying to mkoeppe:

Not sure what you mean. So far, I have not thought about what this is doing, but only on how to redo what that there before without using maxima.
If you have precise suggestions, please make them as explicit as possible.
comment:9 Changed 6 years ago by
The old code, using Maxima, calls the simplex method to solve an LP.
Your code uses new_variable(integer=True, ...)
to solve an IP.
There's a fundamental difference between an LP and and IP.
comment:10 Changed 6 years ago by
ok, please pardon my dumb ignorance, but what does IP stands for ? LP is for linear program, right ?
Are you saying that I should use something else than MILP ? If so, what ?
comment:11 Changed 6 years ago by
LP = Linear Program = all variables real (continuous) I(L)P = Integer (Linear) Program = all variables integer MI(L)P = Mixed Integer (Linear) Program = some variables integer, some variables real.
I'm saying that you should use new_variable
with continuous=True
if you want to imitate whatever it was that the Maxima simplex algorithm did.

ok, thanks for your patience. It should be good now.
comment:15 Changed 6 years ago by
x = [ZZ(k) for k in MIP.get_values(w).values()[:n]]
I think the results will be rational, can't just coerce to ZZ
.

I removed the cast to ZZ.
And also I added from __future__ import absolute_import
, to help transition to py3.
All the imports in the file are ready for this, so this is safe.
