Abstract Efficient daily trading impose aggregation of positions correlated to each other by one of trader’s criteria. The positions aggregation is one of possible ways to increase the online trader’s capacity. In this talk we analyse the well known minimum spanning tree (forest) approach used for the market graphs analysis and combine this approach with less known pseudo-Boolean approach based on the p-median problem. We illustrate our mixed tools (spanning p-forest combined with p- stars) by application them to different sources of data including market graphs and cell formation in group technology. 4

12
The Minimum Spanning Tree (MST) Problem. For a given simple weighted undirected graph G = (V;E;W) find a spanning tree T = (V;E(T)) such that the total sum of all edge weights w(e) for all e E(T) is minimized. It is well known that a MST is a connected acyclic graph, containing exactly (n-1) edges, and might be computed be means of the Kruskal’s (greedy type) algorithm. At each step the Kruskal’s algorithm selects a shortest edge such that the current graph will be a forest. 12

Clique and Forest 14

15
Kruskal’s Algorithm for the MST Repeat the following step until a forest T has n-1 edges (initially E(T) is empty): Add to T a shortest edge that does not form a cycle with edges already in E(T). Assume that we have ordered all m = |E| edges in a non-increasing order such that w(e 1 ) ≤ w(e 1 ) ≤ … ≤ w(e m ) Thus, the Kruskal’s algorithm will terminate with a MST in at most O(mlogm) with m = n(n-1)/2 for a complete graph. 15

16
The tolerance problem for a MST The problem of finding for each eE, the maximum decrease l(e) and the maximum increase u(e) of the edge length w(e) preserving the optimality of T under the assumption that the lengths of all other edges remain unchanged. The values l(e) and u(e) are called the lower and the upper tolerances, respectively, for an edge eE with respect to the given MST T and the function of edge lengths w. 16

17
An optimal MST and Its Tolerances in O(mlogm) time In the following portion we show that a MST together with all its upper and lower tolerances can be computed in O(mlogm) time by a tiny modification of the Kruskal’s algorithm. Let us recall that by adding a single edge y not in T to the chosen spanning subtree S(T) we create a unique cycle C = {e 1 ;e 2,…, e k,y} where the tail of y is the head of e k and the head of y is the tail of e 1 or vice versa. 17

19
Equivalent Problems Set {1,2,3,4} – is the maximum clique, set {0,2,5} is the maximum independent set The clique problem and the independent set problem are complementary: a clique in G is an independent set in the complement graph of G and vice versa.

27 The p-Median Problem (PMP) I = {1,…,m} – a set of m facilities (location points), J = {1,…,n} – a set of n users (clients, customers or demand points) C = [ c ij ] – a m×n matrix with distances (measures of similarities or dissimilarities) travelled (costs incurred) clients location points - location point (cluster center) - Client (cluster points) Costs Matrix

28
28 The PMP: combinatorial formulation The p-Median Problem (PMP) consists of determining p locations (the median points) such that 1 ≤ p ≤ m and the sum of distances (or transportation costs) over all clients is minimal. - location point - client - opened facility p = 3 1 m p complexity

Brusco and Kohn PSYCHOMETRIKA—VOL. 73, NO. 1, 89–105 There is an evidence that the p-median model can, for certain data structures, provide better cluster recovery than alternative clustering procedures (Klastorin, 1985). Klastorin provided a limited comparison of misclassification rates of the complete linkage (Johnson, 1967), average linkage (Sokal & Sneath, 1963), minimum variance (Ward, 1963), K-means (Hartigan & Wong, 1979; MacQueen, 1967), and p- median methods (Mulvey & Crowder, 1979). For data generated based on squared Euclidean measures of dissimilarity, Ward’s method provided the lowest misclassification rates, followed by the p-median method. The p-median model, however, provided the lowest misclassification rates when the pairwise measure of dissimilarity was based on Euclidean distance. 46

47
47 The PMP: Boolean Linear Programming Formulation (ReVelle and Swain, 1970) s.t. - each client is served by exactly one facility - p opened facilities - prevents clients from being served by closed facilities x ij = 1, if j -th client is served by i -th facility; x ij = 0, otherwise

48
48 The PMP: alternative formulation, Cornuejols et al. 1980 Let for each client j - sorted (distinct) distances ( K j – number of distinct distances for j -th client)

51
51 for each client i - sorted distances - iff all the sites within are closed s.t. The PMP: alternative formulation, Cornuejols et al. 1980 - p opened facilities - either at least one facility is open within or - for every client it is an opened facility in some neighbourhood

52
52 The PMP: alternative formulation, Cornuejols et al. 1980 Example, p=2 (Elloumi,2010) Objective: + + 13 coefficients only distinct (in a column) distances are meaningful

53
53 The PMP: alternative formulation, Cornuejols et al. 1980 Example Objective: Constraints: 13 coefficients, 23 linear constr., 12 non-negativity constr., 4 Boolean

54
54 The p-Median Problem: a tighter formulation, Elloumi 2010 Informally: if for client j some neighbourhood k contains only one facility i then there is a simple relation between corresponding variables

55
55 The p-Median Problem: a tighter formulation, Elloumi 2010 Informally: if two clients have equal neighbourhoods then the corresponding z -variables are equivalent and in the objective function terms containing them can be added.

56
56 The p-Median Problem: a tighter formulation, Elloumi 2010 after applying Rule R2 becomes redundant and can be eliminated

60
60 The PMP: pseudo-Boolean formulation (Historical remarks) Hammer, 1968 for the Simple Plant Location Problem (SPLP) called also Uncapacitated Faciltiy Location Problem. His formulation contains both literals and their complements, but at the end of this paper Hammer has considered an inversion of literals; Beresnev, 1971 for the SPLP applied to the so called standardi- zation (unification) problem. He has changed the definition of decision variables, namely for an opened site a Boolean variable is equal to 0, and for a closed site a Boolean variable is equal to 1. This is exactly what is done by Cornuejols et al. 1980 and later on by Elloumi 2010 but as we will show by means of computational experiments with a larger number of decision variables and constraints. Beresnev’s formulation contains complements only for linear terms and all nonlinear terms are without complements.

61
61 The PMP and SPLP differ in the following details SPLP involves fixed cost for location a facility at the given site, while the PMP does not; Unlike the PMP, SPLP does not have a constraint on the number of opened facilities; Typical SPLP formulations separate the set of potential facilities (sites location, cluster centers) from the set of demand points (clients); In the PMP the sets of sites location and demand points are identical, i.e. I = J ; The SPLP with a constraint on the number of opened facilities is called either Capacitated SPLP or Generalized PMP.

62
62 The PMP: pseudo-Boolean formulation Numerical Example: m=5, n=4, p=2 If two locations are opened at sites 1 and 3, i.e S ={1,3} 5 clients 4 locations 2 facilities

74 PBP: combining similar terms

75
75 Truncated polynomial B C,p=2 (y) (7 terms): PBP: truncation If p =2 each cubic term contains at least one zero variable Observation: The degree of the pseudo-Boolean polynomial is at most m-p Initial polynomial B C (y) (10 terms): Truncation allows further reduction of the problem size! p = 2

79
79 Pseudo-Boolean formulation: outcomes Compact but nonlinear problem Equivalent to a nonlinear knapsack (NP- hard) Goal: obtain a model suitable for general- purpose MILP solvers, e.g.: –CPLEX –XpressMP –MOSEK –LPSOL –CLP

87 MBpBM: preprocessing every term (product of variables) corresponds to a subspace of solutions with all these variables equal to 1 like in Branch-and-Bound: –compute an upper bound by some heuristic –for each subspace define a procedure for computing a lower bound (over a subspace) –if the constrained lower bound exceeds global upper bound then exclude the subspace from consideration
