I am following this tutorial to learn column generation. ` https://co-at-work.zib.de/slides/Donnerstag_24.9/cgbpdw-coatwork-annotated.pdf
I have a couple of questions I thought someone experienced in this topic could help me understand.
How are the initial columns selected for the restricted master problem (RMP)?
After solving the restricted master problem and obtaining dual variables, do we compute the reduced cost of the other variables that were not included in the RMP or all variables? This applies to pricing problems too. Does the pricing problem include all variables or only the variables that were not included in the RMP?
Here are the slides that describes column generation and pricing problem:
