An improved Benders decomposition applied to a multi-layer network design problem
B. Fortz (bfortzulb.ac.be)
Abstract: Benders decomposition has been widely used for solving network design problems. In this paper, we use a branch-and-cut algorithm to improve the separation procedure of Gabrel et al. and Knippel et al. for capacitated network design. We detail experiments on bilayer networks, comparing with Knippel’s previous results.
