A Branch-and-Cut Algorithm based on Semidefinite Programming for the Minimum k-Partition Problem

The minimum k-partition (MkP) problem is the problem of partitioning the set of vertices of a graph into k disjoint subsets so as to minimize the total weight of the edges joining vertices in the same partition. The main contribution of this paper is the design and implementation of a branch-and-cut algorithm based on semidefinite … Read more
