MINOA open-source benchmark library

A critical aspect for the long-term success of research in computational optimisation is the availability of libraries of benchmark instances. In MINOA, we generate and collect such instances that are difficult enough to challenge the state of the art and can drive new solution methods.

The instances are of varying difficulty for the various MINO applications. The benchmarks are made publicly available, mainly through the existing platform MINLPLib, in order to reach large visibility.

The goal of this collection is to drive further improvements in algorithmic research by providing the chance to compare new solution methods to the ones developed within MINOA. Also, those instances reflect the difficulties and the characteristics of the underlying real-world tasks so that practitioners can learn about the solvability of the problems.

This library is updated continuously throughout the project duration.

We also provide instance generators or large collections of instances for specific applications:
