A cutting-plane procedure for integer programming (IP) problems usually involves invoking a black-box procedure (such as the Gomory-Chvatal (GC) procedure) to compute a cutting-plane. In this paper, we describe an alternative paradigm of using the same cutting-plane black-box. This involves two steps. In the first step, we design an inequality cx <= d where c and d are integral, independent of the cutting-plane black-box. In the second step, we verify that the designed inequality is a valid inequality by verifying that the set $P \cap \{x\in R^n: cx >= d + 1\} \cap Z^n$ is empty using cutting-planes from the black-box. Here P is the feasible region of the linear-programming relaxation of the IP. We refer to the closure of all cutting-planes that can be verified to be valid using a specific cutting-plane black-box as the verification closure of the considered cutting-plane black-box. This paper undertakes a systematic study of properties of verification closures of various cutting-plane black-box procedures.
