Integer Programming

Many practical problems have variables that are inherently discrete, and approximate solutions assuming continuous variables are not acceptable.  Integer programming is the branch of mathematical programming that deals with the solution of such problems.  We consider for this topic the modeling of practical problems with integer variables, the theory associated with finding integer solutions, and the computational procedures necessary to implement solution algorithms.
