Integral Polyhedron Definition: A nonempty polyhedron P is said to be integral if each of its nonempty faces contains an integral point. Proposition: A nonempty polyhedron P = { x R n : Ax b } with rank ( A ) = n is integral if and only if all of its extreme points are integral. Consider the optimization problem z * = max { cx : x P } , given a polyhedron P . Proposition: The following statements are equivalent: 1 P is integral; 2 There is an integral optimal solution for all c R n for which an optimal solution exists; 3 There is an integral optimal solution for all c Z n for which an optimal solution exists; 4 z * is integral for all c Z n for which an optimal solution exists.

Totally Unimodularity Definition: An m × n matrix A is totally unimodular (TU) if the determinant of every square submatrix is 0, 1, or - 1. Proposition: If A is a totally unimodular matrix and b Z m , then P = { x R n : Ax b } is an integral polyhedron. Proposition: The following statements are equivalent: 1 A is TU; 2 The transpose of A is TU; 3 ( A , I ) is TU; 4 A matrix obtained by deleting a unit row/column from
