Description: A collection of puzzles, each of which may be formulated and solved using integer programming. The puzzles are intended to give practice to students in the formulation of IP models, to stimulate interest, and to demonstrate the variety of structures that may be effectively modelled using integer programming. XPRESS-MP models of the puzzles may be requested by e-mail. Among the three pages of puzzles are problems based on old British currency (half-sovereign, crown, double-florin, half-crown, florin), chessboard movements of bishops or queens, and abbots.
