New Facets of the Linear Ordering Polytope

G. Bolotashvili, M. Kovalev, E. Girlich
1999 SIAM Journal on Discrete Mathematics  
We introduce ten collections of inequalities representing facets of the linear ordering polytope.  ...  The rotation method for the linear ordering polytope generalizes facets induced by subgraphs called m-fences, M obius ladders and Z m -facets introduced by Reinelt 12], (m; k)fences introduced by Bolotashvily  ...  The trivial rotation mapping does not generate new facets for the most known facets of the polytope P n , because in many cases the mapping generates another member of the same facet family, i.e. the corresponding  ...

Blending simple polytopes at faces

Fred B Holt
2004 Discrete Mathematics  
In pursuing the Hirsch conjectures, vertex-blends produced polytopes which have large diameter and few diametral paths. Here we deÿne and explore blends at higher-dimensional faces.  ...  Blending two simple polytopes together at vertices, at edges, or at other supplementary faces, produces another simple polytope.  ...  The truncating hyperplane provides a needed orientation for the blend, and it helps avoid admissible-transformation problems.  ...

Polyhedral results for the edge capacity polytope

Stan P.M. van Hoesel, Arie M.C.A. Koster, Robert L.M.J. van de Leensel, Martin W.P. Savelsbergh
2002 Mathematical programming  
In this paper, we investigate the polytopes of the problem restricted to one arc/edge of the network (the undirected/directed edge capacity problem) for the non-bifurcated routing case.  ...  We give conditions under which the inequalities of the edge capacity polytopes define facets of the network loading polytope.  ...  We show that every non-trivial facet defining inequality for the directed edge capacity polytope defines a facet of the overall network loading polytope as well.  ...

2015 arXiv   pre-print
The GMDTSP is an NP-hard problem as it generalizes the MDTSP and has practical applications in design of ring networks, vehicle routing, flexible manufacturing scheduling and postal routing.  ...  The generalized multiple depot traveling salesmen problem (GMDTSP) is a variant of the multiple depot traveling salesmen problem (MDTSP), where each salesman starts at a distinct depot, the targets are  ...  We also introduce a general theorem that allows one to lift any facet of the MDTSP polytope into a facet of the GMDTSP polytope.  ...

A polyhedral approach to multicommodity survivable network design

Mechthild Stoer, Geir Dahl
1994 Numerische Mathematik  
We discuss basic properties (dimension and trivial facets) of these polytopes in Section 3. The remaining part of the paper discusses stronger formulations of the problem.  ...  We study properties of polytopes that are naturally associated with the model.  ...  The polytope ICOV(g, b) can be linearly transformed into a knapsack polytope with generalized upper bounds, so all results pertaining to that polytope apply also to the ICOV-polytope.  ...
