A polyhedral approach to the feedback vertex set problem
Feedback problems consist of removing a minimal number of arcs or nodes of a directed or undirected graph in order to make it acyclic. In this paper we consider a special variant, namely the problem of finding a maximum weight node induced acyclic subdigraph. We discuss valid and facet defining inequalities for the associated polytope and present computational results with a branch-and-cut algorithm.
