Unformatted text preview: re than (U − L)-suboptimal for the Boolean LP.
ˆ This rounding need not work; indeed, it can happen that for all threshold values, x is infeasible.
But for some problem instances, it can work well. Of course, there are many variations on this simple scheme for (possibly) constructing a feasible,
good point from xrlx .
Finally, we get to the problem. Generate problem data using
20 You can think of xi as a job we either accept or decline, and −ci as the (positive) revenue we
generate if we accept job i. We can think of Ax b as a set of limits on m resources. Aij , which
is positive, is the amount of resource i consumed if we accept job j ; bi , which is positive, is the
amount of resource i available.
Find a solution of the relaxed LP and examine its entries. Note the associated lower bound L.
Carry out threshold rounding for (say) 100 values of t, uniformly spaced over [0, 1]. For each value
of t, note the objective value cT x and the maximum constraint violati...
