By Michael Jünger, Gerhard Reinelt, Giovanni Rinaldi

This ebook is devoted to Jack Edmonds in appreciation of his floor breaking paintings that laid the rules for a wide number of next effects accomplished in combinatorial optimization.

The major half comprises thirteen revised complete papers on present subject matters in combinatorial optimization, provided at Aussois 2001, the 5th Aussois Workshop on Combinatorial Optimization, March 5-9, 2001, and devoted to Jack Edmonds.

Additional highlights during this ebook are an account of an Aussois 2001 certain consultation devoted to Jack Edmonds together with a speech given by way of William R. Pulleyblank in addition to newly typeset types of 3 up-to-now hardly ever available classical papers:

- Submodular capabilities, Matroids, and likely Polyhedra
by means of Jack Edmonds

- Matching: A Well-Solved classification of Integer Linear Programs
via Jack Edmonds and Ellis L. Johnson

- Theoretical advancements in Algorithmic potency for community stream Problems
via Jack Edmonds and Richard M. Karp.

Example text

114) The following problem is solved using matroid intersection (115) Given any directed graph G, given a numerical weight cj for each j ∈ E = E(G), and given sets Ri ⊆ V (G), i ∈ I, find edge-disjoint branchings Bi , i ∈ I, rooted respectively at Ri , which minimize s = j cj , j ∈ i∈I Bi . (116) The problem easily reduces to the case where each Ri consists of the same single node, v0 ∈ V (G). That is, find n = |I| edge-disjoint branchings Bi , each rooted at node v0 , which minimize s. (117) Where F (G) is as defined in (109), let J ⊆ E be a member of F1 iff it is the union of n members of F (G).

So suppose that Hm = (Vm , Em ) is the n-critical graph obtained after (m − 1) Haj´ os steps (with or without homomorphism) and that (wm )T x ≤ w0m is a facet-defining inequality for P (Hm ). It is sufficient to exhibit a linearly independent set of |Vm+1 | incidence vectors of stable sets all having weight w0m+1 . Figure 5 illustrates the corresponding matrix Mm+1 . Observe that Mm+1 is defined inductively: Mm is the submatrix surrounded by heavy lines. Also, the second last block of lines of Mm+1 comes from the stable set S, whose existence is guaranteed by Lemma 2, and the last line corresponds to the stable set of weight w0m+1 that is obtained by deleting the edge x1 y1 from Hm .
