Polyhedra related to integer-convex polynomial systems



This paper deals with the reformulation of a polynomial integer program. For deducing a linear integer relaxation of such a program a class of polyhedra that are associated with nonlinear functions is introduced. A characterization of the family of polynomials for which our approach leads to an equivalent linear integer program is given. Finally the family of so-called integer-convex polynomials is defined, and polyhedra related to such a polynomial are investigated.
