Improved Constraint Propagation via Lagrangian Decomposition [chapter]

David Bergman, Andre A. Cire, Willem-Jan van Hoeve
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose to improve the communication between constraints by introducing Lagrangian penalty costs between pairs of constraints, based on the Lagrangian decomposition scheme.  ...  We apply this approach to constraints that can be represented by decision diagrams, and show that propagating Lagrangian cost information can help improve the overall bound computation as well as the solution  ...  Conclusion We have introduced Lagrangian decomposition in the context of constraint programming as a generic approach to improve the constraint propagation process.  ...

Lagrangian Decomposition via Sub-problem Search [chapter]

Geoffrey Chu, Graeme Gange, Peter J. Stuckey
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose a Lagrangian decomposition method where the sub-problems are solved via search rather than through a specialized propagator.  ...  Recently, Lagrangian decomposition methods have been adapted and applied to Constraint Programming in order to yield stronger bounds on the objective function.  ...  See [3] for more details. Lagrangian Decomposition Lagrangian decomposition is a well understood application of Lagrangian relaxation in order to decompose an optimization problem into parts.  ...
