Valid inequalities and Branch-and-Cut for the Clique Pricing Problem

Motivated by an application in highway pricing, we consider the problem that consists in setting profit-maximizing tolls on a clique subset of a multicommodity transportation network. Following a proof that clique pricing is NP-hard, we propose strong valid inequalities, some of which define facets of the 2-commodity polyhedron. The numerical efficiency of these inequalities is assessed by embedding them within a branch-and-cut framework.
