Assignment 5
1. 9.7-1 Without using your OR Courseware, consider the minimum cost
flow problem shown below, where the bi values (net lows generated) are
given by the nodes, the cij values (costs per unit flow) are given by the
arcs, and the uij vlalues (arc capacities) are given to the right of the
network.

## (a) Obtain an initial BF solution by solving the feasible spanning tree

with basic arcs A B, C E, D E, and C A (a reverse
arc), where one of the nonbasic arcs (C B) also is a reverse
arc. Show the resulting network (including bi , cij, and uij ) in the
same format as the above one (except use dashed lines to draw
the nonbasic arcs), and add the flows in parentheses next to the
basic arcs.
(b) Use the optimality test to verify that this initial BF solution is
optimal and that there are multiple optimal solutions. Apply one
iteration of the network simplex method to find the other optimal BF solution, and then use these results to identify the other
optimal solutions that are not BF solutions.

## 4. 10.3-12 Consider the following integer nonlinear programming problem.

subject to

and
x1 , x2 , x3 are nonnegative integers.
Use dynamic programming to solve this problem.
Solution: Number of stages = 3. For n = 1, 2, 3, at stage n, we determine the value of xn . Let sn be the remaining slack in the functional
constraint, i.e.,

## 5. 10.3-21 Consider the following nonlinear programming problem.

M aximize Z = x1 (1 x2 ) x3 ,
subject to
and

x1 x2 + x3 1
x1 0, x2 0, x3 0.

## Use dynamic programming to solve this problem.

Solution: (Based on the work of Sarah Jones) In stage i we will determine the value of xi . The state of stage i is Si where Si is the slack in
the constraint.
S1 = 1
S2 = 1 x1
S3 = S2 + x2
10

At stage 3 we
max f3 (S3 , x3 ) = x3
s.t.
x3 S3

## The optimal solution is x3 = S3 and f3 (S3 ) = S3 .

At stage 2 we
max f2 (S2 , x2 ) = (1 x2 ) f3 (S2 + x2 )
= (1 x2 ) (S2 + x2 )
s.t.
x2 S2 and x2 0.

2
Since f2 = S2 S2 x2 +x2 x22 , f20 = S2 +12x2 . f20 = 0 = x2 = 1S
.
2
1S2
Now we consider the constraints. S2 = 1 x1 1, therefore 2 0
is always true. The other constraint is x2 S2 or x2 S2 .

1 S2
< S2 = S2 < 1
2
So in the case of S2 < 1 we will take the left endpoint (which is closer
2
to 1S
) S2 .

x2 =

and

At stage 1 we

if S2 1;
if S2 < 1

max f1 (x1 ) = x1 f2 (1 x1 )
s.t.
x1 0
Note here that it is not necessary for x1 to be less than or equal to 1
for x2 is negative in the original constraint. S1 = 1 is not used. Since
S2 = 1 x1 , S2 1 x1 2.

or x1 = 2

It is easy to check (just check x1 = 0, 23 and 2) that x1 = 23 and f1 =

z = 27
. Since S2 = 13 > 1, x2 = 1S
= 13 and x3 = S3 = S2 + x2 = 23 .

## 6. 12.2-2 The research and development division of a company has been

developing four possible new product lines. Management must now
make a decision as to ahich of these four products actually will be
produced and at what levels. Therefore, they have asked the OR department to formulate a mathematical programming model to find the
most profitable product mix.
A substantial cost is associated with beginning the production of any
product, as given in the first row of the following table. The marginal
net revenue from each unit produced is given in the second row of the
table.

Let the continuous decision variables x1 , x2, x3 and x4 be the production
levels of products 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively. Management has imposed
the following policy constraints on these variables:
1. No more than two of the products can be produced.
2. Either product 3 or 4 can be produced only if either product 1 or 2
is produced.
3. Either 5x1 + 3x2 + 6x3 + 4x4 6000
or 4x1 + 6x2 + 3x3 + 5x4 6000.

## Introduce auxiliary binary variables to formulate an MIP model for this

problem.
Solution: For i = 1, 2, 3, 4 let

1

otherwise
Let M be a very large number. The problem can be formulated as
follows:
M aximize Z = 70x1 + 60x2 + 90x3 + 80x4

xi 0 i = 1, 2, 3, 4. yi is binary for i = 1, 2, 3, 4. w is binary.
