Hi! I am currently writing my thesis, which is about optimization. The problem is a mix of the facility location problem and transport problem. I've been coding with python, using the gurobi solver to get results (linear programming). My question is if this solver uses a specific algorithm to find optimal values, or if it just brute forces?
What I have understood from scientific articles, the problem could be np-hard. Those papers have used combined algorithms to find a solution, or simply tried brute force. I am just curious to know if my solution comes from a specific algorithm/s or brute force in the gurobi solver. It would help in order to analyse my results correctly. Would be really grateful for a reply.
Best regards, Isabella
