Integral decomposition of polyhedra and some applications in mixed integer programming
- 103 Downloads
This paper addresses the question of decomposing an infinite family of rational polyhedra in an integer fashion. It is shown that there is a finite subset of this family that generates the entire family. Moreover, an integer analogue of Carathéodory's theorem carries over to this general setting. The integer decomposition of a family of polyhedra has some applications in integer and mixed integer programming, including a test set approach to mixed integer programming.
