Submodular Function Minimization and Maximization in Discrete Convex Analysis

This paper sheds a new light on submodular function minimization and maximization from the viewpoint of discrete convex analysis. L-convex functions and M-concave functions constitute subclasses of submodular functions on an integer interval. Whereas L-convex functions can be minimized efficiently on the basis of submodular (set) function minimization… CONTINUE READING
