Python for linear programming : Let's create an IPL schedule in Python

Samrudha Kelkar (~samrudh)


Python is heavily used in scientific computing. In this talk, let's discuss how can we achieve optimization tasks using linear programming and optimization in python. To demonstrate the possibilities, we will build an IPL schedule using multiple rules coded in an optimization framework
