PPBB Library

The Portable Parallel Branch-and-Bound Library ( PPBB-Library ) presents an easy way to parallelize sequential Branch-and-Bound algorithms for several architectures. A user of the library, who wants to run his sequential algorithm on a parallel system, needs neither knowledge about the hardware architecture nor the parallelization mechanisms.

On the first hand the library can be used for the automatic parallelization of sequential Branch-and-Bound algorithms. On the other hand it can be used for implementing and testing load balancing strategies while the loads are provided by a particular Branch-and-Bound application.
