Integer Programming for Learning Directed Acyclic Graphs from Continuous Data

Learning directed acyclic graphs (DAGs) from data is a challenging task both in theory and in practice, because the number of possible DAGs scales superexponentially with the number of nodes. In this paper, we study the problem of learning an optimal DAG from continuous observational data. We cast this problem in the form of a … Read more

A polynomial time algorithm for the linearization problem of the QSPP and its applications

Given an instance of the quadratic shortest path problem (QSPP) on a digraph $G$, the linearization problem for the QSPP asks whether there exists an instance of the linear shortest path problem on $G$ such that the associated costs for both problems are equal for every $s$-$t$ path in $G$. We prove here that the … Read more
