A Polyhedral Study for the Cubic Formulation of the Unconstrained Traveling Tournament Problem

11/18/2020 ∙ by Marije Siemann, et al. ∙ 0

We consider the unconstrained traveling tournament problem, a sports timetabling problem that minimizes traveling of teams. Since its introduction about 20 years ago, most research was devoted to modeling and reformulation approaches. In this paper we carry out a polyhedral study for the cubic integer programming formulation by establishing the dimension of the integer hull as well as of faces induced by model inequalities. Moreover, we introduce a new class of inequalities and show that they are facet-defining. Finally, we evaluate the impact of these inequalities on the linear programming bounds.
