ORIE 3300/5300 ASSIGNMENT 13 Fall 2010 Individual work. Not to be handed in or graded. 1. Consider the following integer program: maximize x 1 + 3 x 2 subject to 2 x 1 + 5 x 2 9 x 1 , x 2 0 , integer . Solve this problem by branch and bound by starting from an optimal tableau for the initial linear programming relaxation, and then using the dual simplex method to solve the linear programming relaxation of each subproblem obtained by adding the extra constraint defining the branch. 2. The diet problem can be written as min c T x, Ax b, x 0, where x j is the amount of food j to be purchased at a unit cost of c j > 0, a ij is the amount of nutrient i provided by each unit of food j , and b i is the daily requirement of nutrient i . After adding surplus variables t and putting into standard equality form, this becomes max( - c ) T x, Ax - t = b, x 0 , t 0. Show that the initial basis consisting of all the surplus variables is dual-feasible, so that this problem is ideal for solution by the dual simplex method.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
