Dear Julia Opt community,
The combination of Julia+JuMP allowed us to test easily very various models, leading us to find a way to link the entropy, the molecular structure and the viscosity of silicate melts and glasses. This has fundamental implications in Earth sciences and in the glass-making industry, because the viscosity of silicate melts influences, for instance, the dynamic of volcanic eruptions or glass-making processes. I described that a little bit more in this blog post.
Of course, the model is open source and available in a github repository, and futur improvements will be pushed in this repository!
Therefore, thank you the Julia and Julia Opt community for those splendid open-source optimisation packages that allow such kind of work to be done efficiently, focusing on the problem rather than its implementation!
