[en] We consider a hard integer programming problem that is difficult for the standard
branch-and-bound approach even for small instances. A reformulation based on lattice basis reduction is known to be more effective. However the step to compute the reduced basis, even if it is found in polynomial time, becomes a bottleneck for small to medium instances. By using the structure of the problem, we show that we can decompose the problem and obtain the basis by taking the kronecker product of two smaller bases easier to compute. Furthermore, if the two small bases are reduced, the kronecker product is also reduced up to a reordering of the vectors. Computational results show the gain from such an approach. | |
