## A dual-ascent-based branch-and-bound framework for the prize-collecting Steiner tree and related problems

In this work we present a branch-and-bound (B&B) framework for the asymmetric prize-collecting Steiner tree problem (APCSTP). Several well-known network design problems can be transformed to the APCSTP, including the Steiner tree problem (STP), prize-collecting Steiner tree problem (PCSTP), maximum-weight connected subgraph problem (MWCS) and the node-weighted Steiner tree problem (NWSTP). The main component of … Read more
