We consider the vertex-weighted version of the undirected Steiner tree problem. In this problem, a cost is incurred both for the vertices and the edges present in the Steiner tree. We completely describe the associated polytope by linear inequalities when the underlying graph is series-parallel. For general graphs, this formulation can be interpreted as a (partial) extended formulation for the Steiner tree problem. By projecting this formulation, we obtain some very large classes of facet… CONTINUE READING
