## On the integrality gap of the Complete Metric Steiner Tree Problem via a novel formulation

In this work, we study the metric Steiner Tree problem on graphs focusing on computing lower bounds for the integrality gap of the bi-directed cut (DCUT) formulation and introducing a novel formulation, the Complete Metric (CM) model, specifically designed to address the weakness of the DCUT formulation on metric instances. A key contribution of our … Read more
