​Optimization has lengthy been a resource of either concept and functions for geometers, and conversely, discrete and convex geometry have supplied the rules for lots of optimization thoughts, resulting in a wealthy interaction among those topics. the aim of the Workshop on Discrete Geometry, the convention on Discrete Geometry and Optimization, and the Workshop on Optimization, held in September 2011 on the Fields Institute, Toronto, used to be to extra stimulate the interplay among geometers and optimizers. This quantity displays the interaction among those parts.

The inspiring Fejes Tóth Lecture sequence, brought via Thomas Hales of the collage of Pittsburgh, exemplified this process. whereas those fields have lately witnessed loads of job and successes, many questions stay open. for instance, Fields medalist Stephen Smale said that the query of the life of a strongly polynomial time set of rules for linear optimization is without doubt one of the most vital unsolved difficulties at first of the twenty first century. The extensive diversity of themes lined during this quantity demonstrates the various fresh and fruitful connections among diverse ways, and lines novel effects and state of the art surveys in addition to open difficulties.

Com/ njas/packings On Minimal Tilings with Convex Cells Each Containing a Unit Ball K´aroly Bezdek Abstract We investigate the following problem that one can regard as a very close relative of the densest sphere packing problem. If the Euclidean 3-space is partitioned into convex cells each containing a unit ball, how should the shapes of the cells be designed to minimize the average edge curvature of the cells? In particular, we prove that the average edge curvature in question is always at least 13:8564 : : :.

E. v/j D p. K2p /, which is the convex hull of all p-regular subgraphs of K2p . Edmonds et al. W / and pjW j C jT j is odd. Inequalities (9) are called blossom inequalities. We will work with complete graphs K2p in the following as the inequalities (8) may be invalid for non-complete graphs. e. inequalities within a class share a similar structure. A general procedure to generate valid inequalities for some polytope is given by separation of local cuts [1] or their variant called target cuts [9].

The results suggest that target cut separation improves the LP relaxation for all projections and no choice of projection dominates the others in terms of the number of subproblems. Considering CPU times for most instances the overhead of target cut separation is moderate for the given size of projections but helps to reduce the number of subproblems. Comparing our results with those reported in [8] is very difficult since their reported computation times are for experiments carried out in the mid-1990s.
