What is Explicit Constraints?

Explicit Constraints : Explicit constraints are rules that restrict each x<sub>i</sub> to take on values only from a given set.

Common Examples of Explicit constraints are :
Xi≥0 or Si = {all nonnegative real numbers} Xi = 0 or Si = {0,1} 1i≤xi≤ui or Si = {a:1i≥a≥ui}
All tuples satisfying the explicit constraints define a possible solution space for 1(I = Problem instance)
