Integer Programming (IP) is an extension of Linear Programming (LP) in the field of Operations Research. In Integer Programming, the decision variables are required to take on integer values, unlike in LP where variables can take any real value.

Involves solving optimization problems where some or all of the decision variables are required to take on integer values, introducing an additional layer of complexity to the optimization process.

Integer programming is a branch of operations research that deals with optimization problems where some or all decision variables are required to take on integer values. It's used to model situations where discrete decisions, such as selecting whole numbers of items, are essential, extending the applicability of linear programming to real-world scenarios.

An optimization problem in mathematics known as "integer programming" restricts some or all of the variables to being integers. It is a subset of linear programming and is applied in operations research to resolve problems with integer solutions.
