    Description: We investigate the problem of partitioning the nodes of a graph under capacity restriction on the sum of the node weights in each subset of the partition. The objective is to minimize the sum of the costs of the edges between the subsets of the partition. This problem has a variety of applications, for instance in the design of electronic circuits and devices. We present alternative integer programming formulations for this problem and discuss the links between these formulations. Having chosen to work in the space of edges of the multicut, we investigate the convex hull of incidence vectors of feasible multicuts. In particular, several classes of inequalities are introduced, and their strength and robustness are analyzed as various problem parameters change.

    Description: In this paper we consider the problem of $k$-partitioning the nodes of a graph with capacity restrictions on the sum of the node weights in each subset of the partition, and the objective of minimizing the sum of the costs of the edges between the subsets of the partition. Based on a study of valid inequalities, we present a variety of separation heuristics for so-called cycle, cycle with ears, knapsack tree and path-block-cycle inequalities. The separation heuristics, plus primal heuristics, have been implemented in a branch-and-cut routine using a formulation including the edges with nonzero costs and node variables. Results are presented for three classes of problems: equipartitioning problems arising in finite element methods and partitioning problems associated with electronic circuit layout and compiler design.

    Description: In this paper we describe a cutting plane based algorithm for the multiple knapsack problem. We use our algorithm to solve some practical problem instances arising in the layout of electronic circuits and in the design of main frame computers, and we report on our computational experience. This includes a discussion and evaluation of separation algorithms, an LP-based primal heuristic and some implementation details. The paper is based on the polyhedral theory for the multiple knapsack polytope developed in our companion paper SC 93-04 and meant to turn this theory into an algorithmic tool for the solution of practical problems.

    Description: In this paper we investigate whether matrices arising from linear or integer programming problems can be decomposed into so-called {\em bordered block diagonal form}. More precisely, given some matrix $A$, we try to assign as many rows as possible to some number of blocks of limited size such that no two rows assigned to different blocks intersect in a common column. Bordered block diagonal form is desirable because it can guide and speed up the solution process for linear and integer programming problems. We show that various matrices from the LP- and MIP-libraries NETLIB and MITLIB can indeed be decomposed into this form by computing optimal decompositions or decompositions with proven quality. These computations are done with a branch-and-cut algorithm based on polyhedral investigations of the matrix decomposition problem. In practice, however, one would use heuristics to find a good decomposition. We present several heuristic ideas and test their performance. Finally, we investigate the usefulness of optimal matrix decompositions into bordered block diagonal form for integer programming by using such decompositions to guide the branching process in a branch-and-cut code for general mixed integer programs.
