A branch-and-cut algorithm for the Steiner tree problem with delays
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, we investigate the Steiner tree problem with delays, which is a generalized version of the Steiner tree problem applied to multicast routing. For this challenging combinatorial optimization problem, we present an enhanced directed cut-based MIP formulation and an exact solution method based on a branch-and-cut approach. Our computational study reveals that the proposed approach can optimally solve hard dense instances.
