State-of-the-art algorithms for solving linear programs

Průša and Werner (2019) show that the general linear programming problem reduces in nearly linear time to the LP relaxations of many classical NP-hard problems (assuming sparse encoding of instances)....

Polynomially solvable cases of zero-one programming

I am dealing with a problem having two types of variables: binary variables, and continuous variables. In some cases, the continuous variables are not used, and so the problem contains those binary ...

Complexity of LP and MILP Problems?

My original problem is an MILP. I make it an LP by relaxing the integer variables. Can someone please comment on the complexity, solvability and optimality of MILP and LP problems, in general? Is ...

Why is the Ellipsoid Method of polynomial complexity?

We know that the ellipsoid method is proven to be of polynomial complexity. However, as far as I can tell we may need to add exponentially many feasibility cuts in order to solve the LP (or prove no ...

Complexity \ Reference request for variant of max flow problem

In the standard max cost flow problem with arc capacities, the cost of using an arc is proportional to the flow through the arc. For example, if $f_{uv}$ is the flow through the arc $(u,v)$, then the ...
