The 0-1 quadratic knapsack problem consists of maximizing a quadratic objective function subject to a linear capacity constraint. To exactly solve large instances of this problem with a tree search algorithm (e.g., a branch and bound method), the knowledge of good lower and upper bounds is crucial for pruning the tree but also for fixing as many variables… (More)
An efficient use of dynamic programming requires a substantial reduction of the number of labels. We propose in this paper an efficient way of reducing the number of labels saved and dominance computing time. Our approach is validated by experiments on shortest path problem with time windows instances.
