The Weighted Spanning Tree Constraint Revisited
The weighted spanning tree constraint, or wst-constraint, is defined on an edgeweighted graph G and a value K. It states that G admits a spanning tree with weight at most K [3, 4]. It can be applied to network design problems as well as routing problems, in which it serves as a relaxation. In this work, we assume that we can represent the mandatory and possible edges that can belong to a solution to the wst-constraint, e.g., using a subset-bound set variable as in .
