     20Yahoo! Inc. (www.yahoo.com) is one of the world’s largest global online networks of integrated services and advertising on the Web is big business. Ralphe Wiggins and John Tomlin (Yahoo Research) formulated an optimization model for setting bid levels in auctions for placement of certain types of graphical advertisements on web pages. Their model is non-convex, but they were able to obtain optimal or near-optimal solutions rapidly using the COIN-Or Cut and Branch Solver. See http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/0706/0706.3865v1.pdf.
