SPEAKER: Dr. Shabbir Ahmed

ABSTRACT:

We report polyhedral results for a class of combinatorial optimization problems involving submodular utility maximization. Strong valid inequalities are derived by lifting lower dimensional inequalities. We provide a complete characterization of the lifting function and its subadditive approximation. Computational experiments with capital budgeting problems show the effectiveness of the derived inequalities within a branch-and-cut approach.

Joint work with Alper Atamturk, UC Berkeley
