This outstanding collection presents recent results in these areas that are closely connected to Padbergs research. His deep commitment to the geometrical approach to combinatorial optimization can be felt throughout this volume- his search for increasingly better and computationally efficient cutting planes gave rise to its title. The peer-reviewed papers contained here are based on invited lectures given at a workshop held in October 2001 to celebrate Padbergs 60th birthday. Grouped by topic (packing, stable sets, and perfect graphs- polyhedral combinatorics- general polytopes- semidefinite programming- computation), many of the papers set out to solve challenges set forth in Padbergs work. The book also shows how Padbergs ideas on cutting planes have influenced modern commercial optimization software.
