The Clique Problem with Multiple-Choice Constraints under a Cycle-Free Dependency Graph

The clique problem with multiple-choice constraints (CPMC) represents a very common substructure in many real-world applications, for example scheduling problems with precedence constraints. It consists in finding a clique in a graph whose nodes are partitioned into subsets, such that exactly one node from each subset is chosen. Even though we can show that (CPMC) … Read more
