Routing Trains Through Railway Junctions: A New Set-Packing Approach

Richard Lusby, Jesper Larsen, David Ryan, Matthias Ehrgott
2011 Transportation Science  
To exploit the structure of the problem we present a solution procedure which entails solving the dual of this formulation through the dynamic addition of violated cuts (primal variables).  ...  A discussion of the variable (train path) generation phase, as well as an efficient pricing routine in which these variables are represented by tree structures is also included.  ...  Providing that they represent feasible paths through the junction, they are nothing more than extra columns in the model.  ...

Dual Inequalities for Stabilized Column Generation Revisited

Timo Gschwind, Stefan Irnich
2016 INFORMS journal on computing  
Dual-optimal inequalities for stabilized column generation.  ...  We also suggest the dynamic addition of violated dual inequalities in a cutting-plane fashion and the use of dual inequalities that are not necessarily (deep) DOIs.  ...  The additional use of dynamically generated DI saves an extra 17% of the computation time.
