Optimization with constraintsΒΆ

In this example we are going to expose methods to solve a generic optimization problem in the form

[10]:

from __future__ import print_function
import openturns as ot
import math as m

[11]:

# define the objective function
objective = ot.SymbolicFunction(['x1', 'x2', 'x3', 'x4'], ['x1 + 2 * x2 - 3 * x3 + 4 * x4'])

[12]:

# define the constraints
inequality_constraint = ot.SymbolicFunction(['x1', 'x2', 'x3', 'x4'], ['x1-x3'])

[13]:

# define the problem bounds
dim = objective.getInputDimension()
bounds = ot.Interval([-3.] * dim, [5.] * dim)

[14]:

# define the problem
problem = ot.OptimizationProblem(objective)
problem.setMinimization(True)
problem.setInequalityConstraint(inequality_constraint)
problem.setBounds(bounds)

[15]:

# solve the problem
algo = ot.Cobyla()
algo.setProblem(problem)
startingPoint = [0.0] * dim
algo.setStartingPoint(startingPoint)
algo.run()

[16]:

# retrieve results
result = algo.getResult()
print('x^=', result.getOptimalPoint())

x^= [4.47847,-3,4.47847,-3]

[17]:

# draw optimal value history
result.drawOptimalValueHistory()
