Column generation in the integral simplex method
The integral simplex method for set partitioning problems allows only pivots-on-one to be made, which results in a primal all-integer method. In this technical note we outline how to tailor the column generation principle to this method. Because of the restriction to pivots-on-one, only local optimality can be guaranteed, and to ensure global optimality we consider the use of implicit enumeration.
