Subdeterminants and Concave Integer Quadratic Programming

We consider the NP-hard problem of minimizing a separable concave quadratic function over the integral points in a polyhedron, and we denote by D the largest absolute value of the subdeterminants of the constraint matrix. In this paper we give an algorithm that finds an epsilon-approximate solution for this problem by solving a number of … Read more

On sublattice determinants in reduced bases

We prove several inequalities on the determinants of sublattices in LLL-reduced bases. They generalize the fundamental inequalities of Lenstra, Lenstra, and Lovasz on the length of the shortest vector, and show that LLL-reduction finds not only a short vector, but also sublattices with small determinants. We also prove new inequalities on the product of the … Read more
