The Gurobi suite of optimization products include state-of-the-art simplex and parallel barrier solvers for linear programming LP and quadratic programming QP , parallel barrier solver for quadratically constrained programming QCP , as well as parallel mixed-integer linear programming MILP , mixed-integer quadratic programming MIQP and mixed-integer quadratically constrained programming MIQCP solvers. The Gurobi MIP solver includes shared memory parallelism, capable of simultaneously exploiting any number of processors and cores per processor. The implementation is deterministic: two separate runs on the same model will produce identical solution paths. While numerous solving options are available, Gurobi automatically calculates and sets most options at the best values for specific problems. Starting with GAMS distribution For example, the following message is sent to the log when attempting to solve a model that requires a license:.

Gurobi is the most powerful and fastest solver that the prioritizr R package can use to solve conservation planning problems. This vignette will walk you through the process of setting up Gurobi on your computer so that you can use it to solve conservation planning problems. If you encounter any problems while following the instructions below, check out the official Gurobi documentation. Gurobi is a commercial computer program. This means that users will need to obtain a license for Gurobi before they can use it.
Although academics can obtain a special license at no cost, individuals that are not affiliated with a recognized educational institution may need to purchase a license to use Gurobi. If you are an academic that is affiliated with an educational institution, you can take advantage of the special academic license to use Gurobi for no cost.
Once you have signed up for a free account you can request a free academic license. After obtaining a license, you will need to download a copy of the Gurobi installer to your computer. To achieve this, visit the Gurobi downloads web page and download the correct version of the installer for your operating system.
The installation process for the Gurobi software suite depends on the type of operating system you have installed on your computer. Briefly, on Windows systems, you just need to double-click on the Gurobi installer, follow the prompts, and the installer will take care of rest. After installing the Gurobi software suite on your computer, you will need to activate your license. Now we will activate the Gurobi software using the license you downloaded earlier.
Please note that the correct set of instructions depends on your system and license. After running the grbgetkey command with the correct license code, you should see output that looks something like that in the screen shot below. We will also assume that your are running Ubuntu The following instructions were adapted from a discussion thread on the official Gurobi emailing list.
Here, we will use USER. Note that you may be prompted to enter a password. To do this, enter the following command into the same terminal session. Similar to before, we will use USER. Finally, after having activated the license, we can terminate our SSH connections and close the bash sessions.
We can double check that the license has been successfully activated by running Gurobi from the command line. Assuming you have installed Gurobi version 8. If the license was successfully activated, you should see output that looks something like that in the screen shot below.
After activating the license, you now need to install the Gurobi R package named gurobi. Now we will install the gurobi R package distributed with the Gurobi software suite. The gurobi R package installation file should be located within the folder where you installed the Gurobi software suite.
Assuming you installed Gurobi in the default location and assuming you installed version 8. Additionally, Linux users can install the gurobi R package by running the following code from within R:. Next, you will need to install the slam R package because the gurobi R package needs this package to work. Both Windows and Linux users can do this by running the code below in R :. To do this, we can try using the gurobi R package to solve an optimization problem. Copy and paste the R code below into R.
Now you can finally use Gurobi to solve conservation planning problems with prioritizr. If do see an error message, then you might have missed a step while installing the package or activating the license, so try going back through this vignette to see if you missed something. If you successfully installed the Gurobi software suite and the gurobi R package, you can now try solving conservation planning problems using the prioritzr R package.
This function is also useful because you can use it to customize the optimization process e. Finally, to check that everything has been installed correctly, we will use the Gurobi software suite to solve a reserve selection problem created using the prioritzr R package. After running this code, hopefully, you should some information printed on-screen about the optimization process and R should produce a map displaying a solution.
If this code does not produce any errors, then you have successfully installed everything and can begin using Gurobi and the prioritizr R package to solve your very own conservation planning problems. Introduction Gurobi is the most powerful and fastest solver that the prioritizr R package can use to solve conservation planning problems.
Obtaining a license Gurobi is a commercial computer program. Once you accept the Terms Of Service you can generate a license. Downloading the Gurobi software suite After obtaining a license, you will need to download a copy of the Gurobi installer to your computer.
Software installation The installation process for the Gurobi software suite depends on the type of operating system you have installed on your computer. License activation Now we will activate the Gurobi software using the license you downloaded earlier.
Verification We can double check that the license has been successfully activated by running Gurobi from the command line. R package installation Now we will install the gurobi R package distributed with the Gurobi software suite. Solving a prioritzr problem with Gurobi If you successfully installed the Gurobi software suite and the gurobi R package, you can now try solving conservation planning problems using the prioritzr R package.
Gurobi Installation Guide
Home Resources Getting Started. While we support all major programming languages, most of our users choose our Python API for their modeling and development efforts. Even if you are currently familiar with another programming language, we have witnessed several new users being more productive using our Python API. This guide covers software installation, how to obtain and install a license, and an introduction to the Gurobi Interactive Shell. Download for:. The Modeling Basics page offers an overview of modeling from creating the conceptual model, to implementing, and finally solving it.
Gurobi Optimization was founded in by some of the most experienced and respected members of the optimization community. The Gurobi solver quickly became an industry performance leader in linear, quadratic, and mixed-integer programming. Gurobi is a fantastic solver for use with CVX, particularly with the integer and binary variable capability added in CVX 2. Academic users : information about obtaining a license can be found on the Gurobi Academic Program page.
