A Dual of the Rectangle-Segmentation Problem for Binary Matrices


We consider the problem to decompose a binary matrix into a small number of binary matrices whose 1-entries form a rectangle. We show that the linear relaxation of this problem has an optimal integral solution corresponding to a well known geometric result on the decomposition of rectilinear polygons. MSC: 90C27, 90C46
