Block local elimination algorithms for solving sparse discrete optimization problems

Alexander Sviridenko, Oleg Shcherbina

Block elimination algorithms for solving sparse discrete optimization problems are considered. The numerical example is provided. The benchmarking is done in order to define real computational capabilities of block elimination algorithms combined with SYMPHONY solver. Analysis of the results show that for sufficiently large number of blocks and small enough size of separators between the blocks for staircase integer linear programming problem the local elimination algorithms in combination with a solver for solving subproblems in blocks allow to solve such problems much faster than used solver itself for solving the whole problem. Also the capabilities of postoptimal analysis (warm starting) are considered for solving packages of integer linear programming problems for corresponding blocks.
