—We consider the routing and wavelength assignment (RWA) problem on WDM ring networks without wavelength conversion. When the physical network and required connections are given, RWA is the problem to select a suitable path and wavelength among the many possible choices for each connection such that no two paths using the same wavelength pass through the(More)
This paper considers the polyhedral structure of the precedence-constrained knapsack problem, which is a knapsack problem with precedence constraints imposed on the set of variables. The problem itself appears in many applications. Moreover, since the precedence constraints appear in many important integer programming problems, the polyhedral results can be(More)
In this paper, we consider the variable sized bin packing problem where the objective is to minimize the total cost of used bins when the cost of unit size of each bin does not increase as the bin size increases. Two greedy algorithms are described, and analyzed in three special cases: (a) the sizes of items and bins are divisible, respectively, (b) only(More)
We consider a network design problem in which flow bifurcations are allowed. The demand data are assumed to be uncertain, and the uncertainties of demands are expressed by an uncertainty set. The goal is to install facilities on the edges at minimum cost. The solution should be able to deliver any of the demand requirements defined in the uncertainty set.(More)
