Combinatorial optimization searches for an optimum object in a finite collection of objects. Typically, the collection has a concise representation (like a graph), while the number of objects is huge — more precisely, grows exponentially in the size of the representation (like all matchings or all Hamiltonian circuits). So scanning all objects one by one and selecting the best one is not an option. More efficient methods should be found. In the 1960s, Edmonds advocated the idea to call a method… CONTINUE READING
