min_max(?Goal, ?C)

Find the solution of Goal that minimizes the maximum of elements of C.
+Goal
A callable term.
?C
A linear term or a list of linear terms.

Description

If C is a linear term, a solution of the goal Goal is found that minimizes the value of C. If C is a list of linear terms, the returned solution minimizes the maximum value of terms in the list. The solution is found using the branch and bound method; as soon as a partial solution is found that is worse than a previous solution, the search is abandoned and a new solution is searched for. Every time a new better solution is found, the event 280 is raised, its default handler prints the current cost.

Modules

This predicate is sensitive to its module context (tool predicate, see @/2).

Fail Conditions

Fails if there is no solution to Goal.

Resatisfiable

No.
