Abstract

The signomial global optimization algorithm is a method for solving nonconvex mixed-integer signomial problems to global optimality. A convex underestimation is produced by replacing nonconvex signomial terms with convex underestimators obtained through single-variable power and exponential transformations in combination with linearization techniques. The piecewise linear functions used in the linearizations ...
