The C.I.M.E. summer season college at Como in 1986 was once the 1st in that sequence almost about combinatorial optimization. positioned among combinatorics, machine technology and operations learn, the topic attracts on various mathematical the right way to take care of difficulties stimulated by way of real-life purposes. fresh study has focussed at the connections to theoretical machine technology, particularly to computational complexity and algorithmic concerns. The summer time School's task based at the four major lecture classes, the notes of that are incorporated during this volume:

This assumption is not too restrictive: in practice, one can always take the wl to be rational numbers, and multiplying them by a suitable integer one gets integral weights. t. t. 1, all optimal basic solutions to C W S have components 0, 1 or ½. 2 [Nemhauser,Trotter (1975)] / f xl = a (a = 0 or 1) in some optimal solution to CWS, then xl = a in some optimal solution to WS. 3 [Hammer,Hansen,Simeone (1982)] If xi = a (a = 0 or 1) in all optimal solutions to CWS, then xi = ~ in all optimal solutions to WS.
