A linear-programming problem with a set of constraints of the form Σxj = 1, where Jv is a subset of the indices j = 1, 2,..., n and each j can appear at most once in some Jv. This problem is called a GUB problem and a special adaptation of the simplex method is available that reduces the computational burden of having a large number of GUB constraints.
