For each constraint row, find the corresponding Gomory cutting plane inequality, then write it in a form that can be added to the tableau. z + 1 14 x 4 + 3 14 x 5 + 5 4 x 6 = 27 4 x 1- x 5- 5 4 x 6 = 9 4 x 2 + 1 2 x 4- 1 2 x 5 + 17 4 x 6 = 13 4 x 3- 3 7 x 4 + 5 7 x 5 + 3 x 6 = 1 7 Solution: The Gomory cutting plane inequalities are 3 4 x 6 1 4 1 2 x 4 + 1 2 x 5 + 1 4 x 6 1 4 4 7 x 4 + 5 7 x 5 1 7 . To write them in a form that can be added to the tableau, we negate them and add slack variables, getting- 3 4 x 6 + x 7 =- 1 4- 1 2 x 4- 1 2 x 5- 1 4 x 6 + x 8 =- 1 4- 4 7 x 4- 5 7 x 5 + x 9 =- 1 7 . 2. Solve the following integer linear program using the cutting plane algorithm, starting from the optimal basis { 1 , 2 , 5 } for its LP relaxation. max- x 1 + 3 x 2 s.t.- x 1 + 2 x 2 + x 3 = 2 x 1 + 2 x 2 + x 4 = 4 2 x 1- 2 x 2 + x 5 = 2 x 1 , x 2 , x 3 , x 4 , x 5 , integers . Solution: The tableau for basis { 1 , 2 , 5 } is z + 5 4 x 3 + 1 4 x 4 = 7 2 x 1- 1 2 x 3 + 1 2 x 4 = 1 x 2 + 1 4 x 3 + 1 4 x 4 = 3 2 3 2 x 3- 1 2 x 4 + x 5 = 3 . The corresponding basic solution is not integral. The Gomory cut for the x 2-row is 1 4 x 3 + 1 4 x 4 1 2 , which we can write as- 1 4 x 3- 1 4 x 4 + x 6 =- 1 2 to insert it in the tableau. We then start the dual simplex method on the new tableau. For the first iteration, the leaving variable is x 6 , and min c j a j 6 : a j 6 < = min- ,- ,- 5 / 4- 1 / 4 ,- 1 / 4- 1 / 4 ,- ,- =- 1 / 4- 1 / 4 , so x 4 is the entering variable. After pivoting, the new tableau is z + x 3 + x 6 = 3 x 1- x 3 + 2 x 6 = 0 x 2 + x 6 = 1...
