Copositivity cuts for improving SDP bounds on the clique number

Adding cuts based on copositive matrices, we propose to improve Lovász’ bound on the clique number and its tightening introduced by McEliece, Rodemich, Rumsey, and Schrijver. Candidates for cheap and efficient copositivity cuts of this type are obtained from graphs with known clique number. The cost of previously established semidefinite programming bound hierarchies rapidly increases … Read more
