F ast computation of valid linear programming (LP) bounds serves as an important subroutine for solving mixed-integer programming problems exactly. We introduce a new method for computing valid LP bounds designed for this application. The algorithm corrects approximate LP dual solutions to be exactly feasible, giving a valid bound. Solutions are repaired by performing a projection and a shift to ensure all constraints are satisfied; bound computations are accelerated by reusing structural information through …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
