Parallel Approximation, and Integer Programming Reformulation

We analyze two integer programming reformulations of the n-dimensional knapsack feasibility problem without assuming any structure on the weight vector $a.$ Both reformulations have a constraint matrix in which the columns form a reduced basis in the sense of Lenstra, Lenstra, and Lov\’asz. The nullspace reformulation of Aardal, Hurkens and Lenstra has n-1 variables, and … Read more
