Capacitated facility location: Valid inequalities and facets

Karen Aardal, Yves Pochet, Laurence A. Wolsey

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


We examine the polyhedral structure of the convex hull of feasible solutions of the capacitated facility location problem. In particular we derive necessary and sufficient conditions for a family of "effective capacity" inequalities to be facet-defining, and further results on a more general family called "submodular" inequalities.
