Aggregation

From Glossary

Jump to: navigation, search

Aggregation is combining units to reduce problem dimensions. One form of aggregation is to combine basic entities at the data level, such as regions, time periods, and materials. The dimensions of the mathematical program, which include numbers of variables and constraints, are generally reduced by aggregation at the entity level. Another form of aggregation is the use of surrogates, including the strong form: integer equivalent aggregation.
