More on a Binary-Encoded Coloring Formulation

1973-03-01T00:00:00Z (GMT) by Francois Margot Jon Lee
We further develop the 0/1 ILP formulation of Lee for edge coloring where colors are encoded in binary. With respect to that formulation, our main contributions are: (i) an efficient separation algorithm for general block inequalities, (ii) an efficient LP-based separation algorithm for stars (i.e., the all-different polytope), (iii) introduction of matching inequalities, and (iv) introduction of switched path inequalities and their efficient separation, (v) a complete description for paths, (vi) promising computational results.
