On Column Generation Formulations for the RWA Problem

, , and

BibTeX reference

We present a review of column generation formulations for the Routing and Wavelength Assignment (rwa) problem with the objective of minimizing the blocking rate. Several improvements are proposed together with a comparison of the different formulations with respect to the quality of their continuous relaxation bounds and their computing solution ease.
