On Constrained Mixed-Integer DR-Submodular Minimization

DR-submodular functions encompass a broad class of functions which are generally non-convex and non-concave. We study the problem of minimizing any DR-submodular function, with continuous and general integer variables, under box constraints and possibly additional monotonicity constraints. We propose valid linear inequalities for the epigraph of any DR-submodular function under the constraints. We further provide … Read more

Strong Inequalities for Chance-Constrained Program

As an essential substructure underlying a large class of chance-constrained programming problems with finite discrete distributions, the mixing set with $0-1$ knapsack has received considerable attentions in recent literature. In this study, we present a family of strong inequalities that subsume existing ones for this set. We also find many other inequalities that can be … Read more
