Branch and Bound - Anyone is familiar with this algo?

I'm looking to implement this algo in python, here's the problem statement:

"A bank robber is looking to rob as many banks in a day before leaving the country. I got a list of banks in the area with their location (x,y) coordinates, the amount of money they have, and the time it takes to rob it.

id,Β x_coordinate,Β y_coordinate,Β money,Β timeΒ (hr)

0,Β 11.4,Β 3.3,Β 5000,Β 0.6

1,Β 6.9,Β 7.1,Β 15000,Β 0.3

2,Β 1.4,Β 13.2,Β 900,Β 1.1

we travel at a speed of 30km/h.

I have 24 hours to make as much money as possible. Any idea how I could tackle that?

I'm open to discussing!

How to draw a binary tree with tables in LaTeX? (Branch-and-bound Knapsack problem solution graph)

Hi r/LaTeX!

I'm trying to draw a graph to illustrate my Branch-and-bound Knapsack problem solution, but I can't find a way to draw this binary tree with the nodes being 1x2 tables.

Example: https://imgur.com/oV9aufB

I think I should draw this with TikZ but I'm just started using it, and I couldn't find the way yet. Could you help me with this?

Thanks! Stay safe everyone.

Estimation in Depth-first Branch-and-bound

My question: Why does Minimum Spanning Tree act as a very fast method for lower bound estimation?

Suppose we are calculating through a DFS branch-and-bound tree of decisions. We have previously cached some actual but sub-optimal solutions at visited leaves.

Now we encounter a decision subtree, and we want to estimate a lower bound on its cost without explicitly searching through it. (If the lower bound cost along with the existing cost up to the node are already greater than cached solutions , we can prune.)

What is the method of estimation here that is genuinely faster to compute?

The rumor I have heard is that you perform Minimum-Spanning Tree , MST to obtain a lower-bound estimate. But I cannot see how this speeds up execution. An MST would seemingly process every edge in the subtree (while building a heap or whatnot), and since we are considering each edge, we might as well calculate the cost while we are at it, obtaining an actual cost, instead of an estimate.

My question: Why does Minimum Spanning Tree act as a very fast method for lower bound estimation?

Branch and Bound Algorithm Exploits/Vulnerabilities

Implementing a Java program under Branch and Bound Algorithm

The researchers would be devising a solution using the listed algorithm below to address the issue. This solution would implement an application software portable and efficient for smartphones to be shared and to be used across the world. Instead of the current algorithm accessed by taxi drivers working under Uber which promotes unnecessary fuel and time consumption because of going through all the pickup points, users would see a display of various available waiting routes all across Metro Manila (limited per city β and its landmark) as well as the record of the vehicleβs price meter β the application would display the price drop or rise every five minutes of travelling time.

This is the beginning of our research proposal. And frankly, we have no idea how to continue and finish this. Could you give us some insight on how to code a program or even where to begin in coding a program using a branch and bound algorithm (we're rooting for doing this under the assignment problem approach) that would basically make the lives of ridesharers and drivers more efficient and easier?

Note: This is a high school paper being prepared by high school students with little background on C and Java and HTML.

How is the gap calculated in branch and bound?

I have found two conflicting formulas for calculating the relative gap in branch and bound.

(UB - Upper Bound, LB - Lower Bound)

This blog entry says the gap is calculated as (UB - LB) / UB.

While this paper (page 12) says it's calculated as (UB - LB) / LB.

Is one of them wrong? Which one?

Calculating items included in branch and bound knapsack

Using a branch and bound algorithm I have evaluated the optimal profit from a given set of items, but now I wish to find out which items are included in this optimal solution. I'm evaluating the profit value of the optimal knapsack using the code here.

So, how can I get the items that form the optimal solution, rather than just the profit?

Need help understanding branch and bound algorithms

I have a final tomorrow and understand all the concepts in my algorithms class except for branch and bound. I have googled and read my book and everything has just gone over my head. I was hoping someone could supply me with a decent explanation/example of how b&b works(please avoid using as many math symbols as possible because i have a feeling that might be a source of confusion).

examples we went over in class have been the 0-1 knapsack B&B and the a star search(still don't understand how they work).

thanks to whoever helps.
