Facets for Continuous Multi-Mixing Set with General Coefficients and Bounded Integer Variables

Bansal and Kianfar introduced continuous multi-mixing set where the coefficients satisfy the so-called n-step MIR conditions and developed facet-defining inequalities for this set. In this paper, we first generalize their inequalities for the continuous multi-mixing set with general coefficients (where no conditions are imposed on the coefficients) and show that they are facet-defining in many … Read more

n-step cycle inequalities: facets for continuous n-mixing set and strong cuts for multi-module capacitated lot-sizing problem

In this paper, we introduce a generalization of the continuous mixing set (which we refer to as the continuous n-mixing set). This set is closely related to the feasible set of the multi-module capacitated lot-sizing (MML) problem with(out) backlogging. We develop new classes of valid inequalities for this set, referred to as n’-step cycle inequalities, … Read more

Mixed n-Step MIR Inequalities: Facets for the n-Mixing Set

Gunluk and Pochet [O. Gunluk, Y. Pochet: Mixing mixed integer inequalities. Mathematical Programming 90(2001) 429-457] proposed a procedure to mix mixed integer rounding (MIR) inequalities. The mixed MIR inequalities define the convex hull of the mixing set $\{(y^1,\ldots,y^m,v) \in Z^m \times R_+:\alpha_1 y^i + v \geq \b_i,i=1,\ldots,m\}$ and can also be used to generate valid … Read more
