A generic view of Dantzig–Wolfe decomposition in mixed integer programming. (English) Zbl 1109.90062
Summary: The Dantzig-Wolfe reformulation principle is presented based on the concept of generating sets. The use of generating sets allows for an easy extension to mixed integer programming. Moreover, it provides a unifying framework for viewing various column generation practices, such as relaxing or tightening the column generation subproblem and introducing stabilization techniques.
