On classes of set optimization problems which are reducible to vector optimization problems and its impact on numerical test instances

Set optimization with the set approach has recently gained increasing interest due to its practical relevance. In this problem class one studies optimization problems with a set-valued objective map and defines optimality based on a direct comparison of the images of the objective function, which are sets here. Meanwhile, in the literature a wide range … Read more

New Benchmark Instances for the Steiner Problem in Graphs

We propose in this work 50 new test instances for the Steiner problem in graphs. These instances are characterized by large integrality gaps and symmetry aspects which make them harder to both exact methods and heuristics than the test problems currently in use for the evaluation and comparison of existing and newly developed algorithms. Our … Read more
