We consider the question of finding deep cuts from a model with two rows of the type PI = {(x,s) ∈ Z2 ×Rn+ : x = f +Rs}. To do that, we show how to reduce the complexity of setting up the polar of conv(PI ) from a quadratic number of integer hull computations to a linear number of integer hull computations. Furthermore, we present an algorithm that avoids computing all integer hulls. A polynomial running time is not guaranteed but computational results show that the algorithm runs quickly in practice.

In 2007 we studied a mixed-integer set arising from two rows of a simplex tableau. We showed that facets of such a set can be obtained from lattice point free triangles and quadrilaterals associated with either three or four variables. In this paper we generalize our findings and show that, when upper bounds on the non-basic variables are also considered, further classes of facets arise that cannot be obtained from triangles and quadrilaterals. Specifically, when exactly one upper bound on a non-basic variable is intro- duced, stronger inequalities that can be derived from pentagons involving up to six variables also appear. [less ▲]

We address the question to what extent polyhedral knowledge about individual knapsack constraints suffices or lacks to describe the convex hull of the binary solutions to their intersection. It turns out that the sign patterns of the weight vectors are responsible for the types of combinatorial valid inequalities appearing in the description of the convex hull of the intersection. In partic- ular, we introduce the notion of an incomplete set inequality which is based on a combinatorial principle for the intersection of two knapsacks. We outline schemes to compute nontrivial bounds for the strength of such inequalities w.r.t. the intersection of the convex hulls of the initial knapsacks. An extension of the inequalities to the mixed case is also given. This opens up the possibility to use the inequalities in an arbitrary simplex tableau. [less ▲]
