In the previous section, we used Gomory cutting plane method to solve an Integer programming problem. In this section, we provide another example to. Historically, the first method for solving I.P.P. was the cutting plane method. This method is for the pure integer programming model. The procedure is, first. AN EXAMPLE OF THE GOMORY CUTTING PLANE. ALGORITHM. Consider the integer programme max z = 3×1 + 4×2 subject to. 3×1 − x2 ≤ 3×1 + 11×2 ≤.

Introducing a new slack variable x k for this inequality, a new constraint is added to the linear program, namely.

Cutting-plane method

Such procedures are commonly used to find integer solutions to mixed integer linear programming MILP problems, as well as to solve general, not necessarily differentiable convex optimization problems. Furthermore, nonbasic variables are equal to 0s in methoe basic solution and if x i is not an integer for the basic solution x.

Finding such an inequality is the separation problemand such an inequality is a cut. So the inequality above excludes the basic feasible solution and thus is a cut with the desired properties. This process is repeated until an optimal integer solution is found.

Gomory Cutting Plane Algorithm

Use the simplex method to find an optimal solution of the problem, ignoring the integer condition. In this method, convergence is guaranteed in a finite number of iterations. These constraints are added to reduce or cut the solution space in every successive iteration, ruling out the current fractional solution, while ensuring that no integer solution is excluded in the process. If it is not, there is guaranteed to exist a linear inequality that separates the optimum from the convex hull of cuttint true feasible set.


The obtained optimum is tested for being an integer solution.

The new program is then solved and the process is repeated until an integer solution is found. Rewrite this equation so that the integer parts are on the left side and the fractional parts are on the right side:. Gomory Cutting Plane Algorithm. Cutting plane methods for MILP work by solving a non-integer linear program, the linear relaxation of the given integer program. B They are popularly used for non-differentiable convex minimization, where a convex objective function and its subgradient can be evaluated efficiently but usual gradient methods for differentiable optimization can not be used.

This is then added as an additional linear constraint to exclude the vertex found, creating a modified linear program. Augmented Lagrangian methods Sequential quadratic programming Successive linear programming. Terminate the iterations if all the basic variables have integer values. The procedure is, first, ignore the integer stipulations, and solve the problem as an ordinary LPP. The underlying principle is to approximate the feasible region of a nonlinear convex program by a finite set of closed half spaces and to solve a sequence of approximating linear programs.

Cutting-plane methods for general convex continuous optimization and variants are known under various names: Simplex algorithm of Dantzig Revised simplex algorithm Criss-cross algorithm Principal pivoting algorithm of Lemke.


The method proceeds by first dropping the requirement that the x i be integers and solving the associated linear programming problem to obtain a basic feasible solution.

Golden-section search Interpolation methods Line search Nelder—Mead method Successive parabolic interpolation. Otherwise, construct a Gomory’s fractional cut from the row, which has the largest fractional part, and add cutying to the original set of constraints.

Examine the optimal solution. If the solution thus obtained gomoru integral valued, then this is the required optimal solution of the original I. This situation is most typical for the concave maximization of Lagrangian dual functions. Geometrically, this solution will be a vertex of the convex polytope consisting of all feasible points.

Then, the current non-integer solution is no longer feasible to the relaxation.

Annals of Operations ResearchVol. Optimization algorithms and methods. Another common situation is the application of the Dantzig—Wolfe decomposition to a structured optimization problem in which formulations with an exponential number of variables are obtained. This page was last edited on 5 Novemberat Otherwise, at each iteration, additional constraints are added to the original problem.
