Relaxation Deﬁnition: ( R ) : z * R = max { c ( x ) : x T } is called a relaxation of ( P ) : z * P = max { f ( x ) : x S } if 1 S T , 2 c ( x ) f ( x ) , x S . Proposition: z * P z * R . Proof. Let x * P be the optimal solution of ( P ) . Then x * P S . Since S T , x * P T . So x * P is feasible for ( R ) . By the deﬁnition of optimality, z * P = f ( x * ) z * R . Proposition: Let x * R be an optimal solution for ( R ) . If x * R S and f ( x * R ) = c ( x * R ) then x * R is optimal for ( P ) . Proof. For any feasible solution of P , x S , since S T , x T . Since x * R is optimal for ( R ) , c ( x ) c ( x * R ) . Because x * R is also feasible for ( P ) , by the deﬁnition of optimality, x * R is optimal for ( P ) . Zhang IEE 376 Introduction to OR 2 / 9
