Facets of the knapsack polytope from non-minimal covers

We propose two new classes of valid inequalities (VIs) for the binary knapsack polytope, based on non-minimal covers. We also show that these VIs can be obtained through neither sequential nor simultaneous lifting of well-known cover inequalities. We further provide conditions under which they are facet-defining. The usefulness of these VIs is demonstrated using computational … Read more

The Stochastic Multistage Fixed Charge Transportation Problem: Worst-Case Analysis of the Rolling Horizon Approach

We introduce the Stochastic multistage fixed charge transportation problem in which a producer has to ship an uncertain load to a customer within a deadline. At each time period, a fixed transportation price can be paid to buy a transportation capacity. If the transportation capacity is used, the supplier also pays an uncertain unit transportation … Read more
