A simple Introduction to higher order liftings for binary problems

\(\) A short, simple, and self-contained proof is presented showing that $n$-th lifting for the max-cut-polytope is exact. The proof re-derives the known observations that the max-cut-polytope is the projection of a higher-dimensional regular simplex and that this simplex coincides with the $n$-th semidefinite lifting. An extension to reduce the dimension of higher order liftings … Read more
