Optimizing Non Linear function

Hi All,


As we know that Anaplan works on Linear Programming principle, it gets challenging to solve Non-linear problems. One such problem is minimizing absolute difference of 2 variables. Following is the solution for the same -


Equation |a-b|<= c


where - a, b are decision variables, c is decision variable


Below constraints need to be applied and c is a positive variable
a - b <= c
b - a <= c


Finally you achieve "c" value from optimizer which is the absolute difference.
