# optidef
Optidef is a small library that provides a standard set of environments for writing optimization problems.
## Features
The most important features are:
- Different alignment alternatives between the constraints, objective function and the other problem components.
- Implemenation of a short format where "minimize" is substituted by "min" and "subject to" by "s.t."
- It references optimization problem using three different policies:
* No equation is referenced
* The problem is referenced with a single label
* Each equation has an individual reference.
- Limitless number of constraints.
- Four types of optimization problems:
* minimize
* maximize
* arg mini
* arg maxi
- The objective function can be broken in several lines without compromising the alignment or the structure of the problem.
## Usage
Import the package by directly adding \usepackage{optidef} to your LaTeX document. Consult the documentation for different examples and syntax usage.
## Syntax
The syntax to define an optimization problem is given by:
>\begin{mini#}|sizeFormat|[constraintFormat]
{optimizationVariable}
{objectiveFunction \label{objectiveReference}}
{\label{problemReference}}
{problemResult}
\addConstraint{LHS.1}{RHS.1 \label{Const.1}}{extraInfo.1}
\addConstraint{LHS.2}{RHS.2 \label{Const.2}}{extraInfo.2}
.
.
\addConstraint{LHS.N}{RHS.N \label{Const.N}}{extraInfo.N}
\end{mini#}
where mini# takes any of the following values:
- mini\* for no referencing
- mini! for referencing each equation
- mini for referencing with a single label the whole problem.
The last two defined problem parameters, "\label{optimizationProblem}"" and "optimizationResult", are mandatory to allow line breaking between the 6 parameters.
After the definition of this parameters, the environment accepts the definition of an infinite number of constraints.
Finally note that \begin{mini#} can be substituted by \begin{maxi#}, \begin{argmini#} or \begin{argmaxi#}.
