Reduced RLT Representations for Nonconvex Polynomial Programming Problems

This paper explores equivalent, reduced size Reformulation-Linearization Technique (RLT)-based formulations for polynomial programming problems. Utilizing a basis partitioning scheme for an embedded linear equality subsystem, we show that a strict subset of RLT defining equalities imply the remaining ones. Applying this result, we derive significantly reduced RLT representations and develop certain coherent associated branching rules … Read more
