Beschreibung:

This book analyzes and compares four closely related problems, namely linear programming, integer programming, linear integration, and linear summation (or counting). The book provides some new insights on duality concepts for integer programs.
Analyzes and compares four closely related nontrivial problems, namely linear programming, integer programming, linear integration, linear summation (or counting) with a focus on duality

Integer programming (IP) is a fascinating topic. Indeed, while linear programming (LP), its c- tinuous analogue, is well understood and extremely ef?cient LP software packages exist, solving an integer program can remain a formidable challenge, even for some small size problems. For instance, the following small (5-variable) IP problem (called the unbounded knapsack problem) min{213x?1928x?11111x?2345x +9123x} 1 2 3 4 5 s.t. 12223x +12224x +36674x +61119x +85569x = 89643482, 1 2 3 4 5 x ,x ,x ,x ,x?N, 1 2 3 4 5 taken from a list of dif?cult knapsack problems in Aardal and Lenstra [2], is not solved even by hours of computing, using for instance the last version of the ef?cient software package CPLEX. However,thisisnotabookonintegerprogramming,asverygoodonesonthistopicalreadyexist. For standard references on the theory and practice of integer programming, the interested reader is referred to, e.g., Nemhauser and Wolsey [113], Schrijver [121], Wolsey [136], and the more recent Bertsimas and Weismantel [21]. On the other hand, this book could provide a complement to the above books as it develops a rather unusual viewpoint.
