In particular Floudas et al proposed to solve the following problem:.

Since the primal problem is infeasible, it is already known that the solution of this problem is positive. Once this problem is solved and a stationary point is obtained, the following necessary Kuhn-Tucker conditions are satisfied:. From them it is concluded that by solving the problem the condition is satisfied. Note that in this step it is not imperative to achieve globality.

## MATHEMATICAL OPTIMIZATION THEORY AND OPERATIONS RESEARCH

In most cases, the function and are implicitly defined. One case in which these functions can be obtained in explicit form is when the global minimum over can be obtained independently of. Two examples in which this property is satisfied arise when the functions and are separable in and , and in the variable factor programming case. Once Property P holds, evalution of simply requires that the minima in the master problem be global. This is the so called L-Dual-Adequacy property, which upon satisfaction of Property P can be achieved only if a global search of the solution of both.

Another case in which these functions can be obtained in explicit form is when Property P' is satisfied, i.

This is guaranteed when and are convex and separable in x. If Property P' is simply assumed, then this implementation of Generalized Benders Decomposition may only be used, without guarantees, to identify candidates for local, but not global minima. Other procedures may exist in which the Master problem can be solved without using these requirements. In the GBD method only active inequalities are considered and the set is is disregarded. In particular, assume an outer approximation given at a given point , where for a fixed the point corresponds to the optimal solution to the problem.

Making use of the Karush-Kuhn-Tucker conditions and eliminating the continuous variables x, the inequalities can be reduced to Lagrangrian cut projected in the y-space.

This can be interpreted as a surrogate constraint because it is obtained as a linear combination of these. For the case where there is no feasible solution to the problem, if the point is obtained from the feasibility subproblem NLPF , the feasibility cut projected in y can be obtained using a similar procedure. In this way, the problem M-MIP reduces to a problem projected in the y-space. Since the master problem can be derived from the master problem of the Outer-Approximation algorithm in the context of problem. GBD can be regarded as a particular case of the Outer Approximation algorithm.

In fact the following property, holds between the two methods:. Property 1. The above proof follows from the fact that the Lagrangian and feasibility cuts, and , are surrogates of the outer approximations. Given the fact that the lower bounds of GBD are generally weaker, this method commonly requires a large number of cycles or major iterations.

### Nomenclature

As the number of variables increases this differences become more pronounced. This is to be expected since only one new cut is generated per iteration. Therefore, user-supplied constraints must often be added to the master problem to strengthen the bounds. As for the OA algorithm, the trade-off is that while is generally predicts stronger lower bounds than GBD, the computational cost for solving the master problem M-OA is greater since the number of constraints added per iteration is equal to the number of nonlinear constraints plus the nonlinear objective.

Property 2. If problem PI has zero integrality gap, the GBD algorithm converges in one iteration once the optimal is found. The above property implies that the only case one can expect the GBD method to terminate in one iteration, is when the initial discrete vector is the optimum, and when the objective value of the NLP relaxation of problem P1 is the same as the objective of the optimal mixed-integer solution.
