Deepest Cuts for Benders Decomposition

  title={Deepest Cuts for Benders Decomposition},
  author={Mojtaba Hosseini and John G. Turner},
Since its inception, Benders Decomposition (BD) has been successfully applied to a wide range of large-scale mixed-integer (linear) problems. The key element of BD is the derivation of Benders cuts, which are often not unique. In this paper, we introduce a novel unifying Benders cut selection technique based on a geometric interpretation of cut “depth”, produce deepest Benders cuts based on `p-norms, and study their properties. Specifically, we show that deepest cuts resolve infeasibility…

On generating maximal nondominated Benders cuts
An algorithmic strategy that utilizes a preemptively small perturbation of the right-hand-side of the Benders subproblem to generate maximal nondominated Benders cuts, as well as a complimentary strategy that generates an additional cut in each iteration via an alternative emphasis on decision variable weights are proposed.
Strengthened Benders Cuts for Stochastic Integer Programs with Continuous Recourse
It is demonstrated that using split cuts within the cut-and-project framework can significantly improve the performance of Benders decomposition and yield stronger relaxations in general when using multiple split disjunctions.
Implementing Automatic Benders Decomposition in a Modern MIP Solver
We describe the automatic Benders decomposition implemented in the commercial solver IBM CPLEX. We propose several improvements to the state-of-the-art along two lines: making a numerically robust
Accelerating Benders Decomposition: Algorithmic Enhancement and Model Selection Criteria
A new technique for accelerating the convergence of the algorithm and theory for distinguishing “good” model formulations of a problem that has distinct but equivalent mixed integer programming representations is introduced.

A successive projections algorithm onto the reverse polar is proposed that computes the decomposition of the deepest cut into facet-defining cuts, which are deep in a well-defined geometrical sense, and facet- Defining cuts.

Combinatorial Benders' Cuts for Mixed-Integer Linear Programming
Computational results on two specific classes of hard-to-solve MIPs indicate that the new method produces a reformulation which can be solved some orders of magnitude faster than the original MIP model.
Logic-based Benders decomposition
Abstract. Benders decomposition uses a strategy of ``learning from one's mistakes.'' The aim of this paper is to extend this strategy to a much larger class of problems. The key is to generalize the
