knapsack module¶
Knapsack problem.
This module implements the Knapsack problem.
In its simplest form, it states that:
Given a set of items, each with a given weight and value, determine the number of each item to include in a collection so that the total weight is less than or equal to a given weight capacity and the total value is as large as possible.
Multiple variations of the Knapsack problem can be achieved depending on the inputs provided.
Moreover, a multi-objective version of this problem is also available, in which the following new objective function is added to previous formulation:

Bases:
OptimizationProblem
Generic knapsack optimization problem.
Different variations can be achieved:
0/1 or Binary Knapsack problem:
Given a set of \(n\) items, each with a weight \(w_i\) and a value \(v_i\), and a knapsack with a maximum weight capacity \(W\). Choose which items to pack in order to maximize the total knapsack value while respecting its weight capacity.
Unbounded Knapsack problem:
With respect to the Binary variant, it removes the restriction that there is only one of each item. This can be achieved by setting the attribute
binary
to False, which will remove the upper bound of the design variables.Bounded Knapsack problem:
With respect to the Binary variant, it specifies an upper bound for each item. This can be achieved by providing an array
items_ub
with the upper bound relative to each item.
Moreover, an additional constraint regarding the total number of items can be added. This is achieved through the attribute
capacity_items
and will limit the number of items that fit into the knapsack.The constructor.
Initialize the Knapsack
OptimizationProblem
by defining theDesignSpace
and the objective and constraint functions.The number of items in the problem is deduced from the
values
array.- Parameters:
values (ndarray) – The items’ values.
weights (ndarray) – The items’ weights.
items_ub (ndarray | None) – The items’ upper bounds. If None, an unlimited number of each item is allowed.

By default it is set to True.
capacity_weight (float | None) – The knapsack weight capacity. If None, the knapsack will have an unlimited weight capacity.
capacity_items (int | None) – The knapsack number of items capacity. If None, the knapsack will accept an unlimited total number of items.

- add_observable(obs_func, new_iter=True)¶

When the
OptimizationProblem
is executed, the observables are called following this sequence:The optimization algorithm calls the objective function with a normalized
x_vect
.The
OptimizationProblem.preprocess_functions()
wraps the function as aNormDBFunction
, which unnormalizes thex_vect
before evaluation.The unnormalized
x_vect
and the result of the evaluation are stored in theOptimizationProblem.database
.The previous step triggers the
OptimizationProblem.new_iter_listeners
, which calls the observables with the unnormalizedx_vect
.The observables themselves are wrapped as a
NormDBFunction
byOptimizationProblem.preprocess_functions()
, but in this case the input is always expected as unnormalized to avoid an additional normalizing-unnormalizing step.Finally, the output is stored in the
OptimizationProblem.database
.

\[ \begin{align}\begin{aligned}min_x f(x)\\s.t.\\g(x)\leq 0\\h(x)=0\\l_b\leq x\leq u_b\end{aligned}\end{align} \]The exterior penalty approach consists in building a penalized objective function that takes into account constraints violations:
\[ \begin{align}\begin{aligned}min_x \tilde{f}(x) = \frac{f(x)}{o_s} + s[\sum{H(g(x))g(x)^2}+\sum{h(x)^2}]\\s.t.\\l_b\leq x\leq u_b\end{aligned}\end{align} \]Where \(H(x)\) is the Heaviside function, \(o_s\) is the

wraps the function as aNormDBFunction
, which unnormalizes thex_vect
before evaluation.The unnormalized

byOptimizationProblem.preprocess_functions()
, but in this case the input is always expected as unnormalized to avoid an additional normalizing-unnormalizing step.Finally, the output is stored in the

\[ \begin{align}\begin{aligned}min_x \tilde{f}(x) = \frac{f(x)}{o_s} + s[\sum{H(g(x))g(x)^2}+\sum{h(x)^2}]\\s.t.\\l_b\leq x\leq u_b\end{aligned}\end{align} \]Where \(H(x)\) is the Heaviside function, \(o_s\) is the
