When is the McCormick envelope exact?

I know that given $S$ of the form $$ S = \{ (x,y,z) \in \mathbb R^3: \ell_x \leq x \leq u_x; \ell_y \leq y \leq u_y; z = xy\} $$ with finite lower and upper bounds, the McCormick envelope of $S$ ...

How to transform these conditional constraints to linear integer ones in a more efficient way?

The conditional constraints A and B can be transformed to a set of linear integer constraints as follows: A) $\text{if} \ x_1=0 \ \text{then} \ d_1=1 \ \text{else} \ d_1= 0\\ x_1\in {\rm I\!R}^{\geq ...

Theoretical aspect of using extended formulation

If I can show a polyhedron Y is an extended formulation of polyhedron X and every extreme point in Y is integral, does that automatically imply the projection of Y onto the variable space of X gives ...
