## An efficient semidefinite programming relaxation for the graph partition problem

We derive a new semidefinite programming relaxation for the general graph partition problem (GPP). Our relaxation is based on matrix lifting with matrix variable having order equal to the number of vertices of the graph. We show that this relaxation is equivalent to the Frieze-Jerrum relaxation [A. Frieze and M. Jerrum. Improved approximation algorithms for … Read more
