Certified Constraint Propagation and Dual Proof Analysis in a Numerically Exact MIP Solver

This paper presents the integration of constraint propagation and dual proof analysis in an exact, roundoff-error-free MIP solver. The authors employ safe rounding methods to ensure that all results remain provably correct, while sacrificing as little computational performance as possible in comparison to a pure floating-point implementation. The study also addresses the adaptation of certification … Read more

On the Integrality Gap of Binary Integer Programs with Gaussian Data

For a binary integer program (IP) $\max c^\T x, Ax \leq b, x \in \{0,1\}^n$, where $A \in \R^{m \times n}$ and $c \in \R^n$ have independent Gaussian entries and the right-hand side $b \in \R^m$ satisfies that its negative coordinates have $\ell_2$ norm at most $n/10$, we prove that the gap between the value … Read more
