  • Comparison of Discrete and Continuous Models for the Pooling Problem 

    Alfaki, Mohammed; Haugland, Dag (Dagstuhl Publishing, 2011)
    The pooling problem is an important global optimization problem which is encountered in many industrial settings. It is traditionally modeled as a bilinear, nonconvex optimization problem, and solved by branch-and-bound ...
  • Models and Solution Methods for the Pooling Problem 

    Alfaki, Mohammed (The University of Bergen, 2012-06-18)
    Pipeline transportation of natural gas is largely affected by restrictions regarding gas quality imposed by the market and the actual quality of the gas produced at sources. From the sources, gas flow streams of unequal ...
  • Solving the pooling problem with LMI relaxations 

    Frimannslund, Lennart; El Ghami, Mohamed; Alfaki, Mohammed; Haugland, Dag (The authors, 2012)
    We consider the standard pooling problem with a single quality parameter, which is a polynomial global optimization problem occurring among other places in the oil industry. In this paper, we show that if the feasible ...
