Properties and Exact Solution Approaches for the Minimum Cost Dominating Tree Problem

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10722)


The problem under consideration is called the minimum cost dominating tree problem [6]. It arises in the context of wireless mobile communication, when building a virtual backbone is required.
