The quadratic knapsack (QK) model naturally arises in a variety of problems in operations research, statistics and combinatorics. Some “upper planes” for the QK problem are derived, and their different uses in a branch-and-bound scheme for solving such a problem are discussed. Some theoretical results concerning the class of all upper planes, as well as extensive computational experience, are reported.
