Error localization as a mixed integer problem with the editrules package

Error localization is the problem of finding out which fields in raw data records contain erroneous values. The editrules extension package for the R environment forstatistical computing was recently extended with a module that allows for error localizationbased on a mixed integer programming formulation (MIP). In this paper we describe the MIP formulation of the error localization problem for the case of numerical, categorical, or mixed numerical and categorical datasets.
