We contribute to the theory for minimal liftings of cut-generating functions. In particular, we give three operations that preserve the so-called covering property of certain structured cutgenerating functions. This has the consequence of vastly expanding the set of undominated cut generating functions which can be used computationally, compared to known(More)
For the one dimensional infinite group relaxation, we construct a sequence of extreme valid functions that are piecewise linear and such that for every natural number k ≥ 2, there is a function in the sequence with k slopes. This settles an open question in this area regarding a universal bound on the number of slopes for extreme functions. The function(More)
We explore the lifting question in the context of cut-generating functions. Most of the prior literature on lifting for cut-generating functions focuses on which cut-generating functions have the unique lifting property. Here we develop a general theory for understanding how to do lifting for cut-generating functions which do not have the unique lifting(More)
The infinite models in integer programming can be described as the convex hull of some points or as the intersection of half-spaces derived from valid functions. In this paper we study the relationships between these two descriptions. Our results have implications for finite dimensional corner polyhedra. One consequence is that nonnegative continuous(More)
