|Abstract: ||This paper describes some rules for combining component models
into complete linear programs. The objective is to lay the
foundations for systems that give users flexibility in designing
new models and reusing old ones, while at the same time,
providing better documentation and better diagnostics than
currently available. The results presented here rely on two
different sets of properties of LP models: first, the syntactic
relationships among indices that define the rows and columns of
the LP, and second, the meanings attached to these indices.
These two kinds of information allow us to build a complete
algebraic statement of a model from a collection of components
provided by the model builder.|
