Combinatorial design for minimization problem over binary strings

Suppose the cost of a binary string $B$ of length $k$ is the number of $1$s that occur before the last $0$. For example, $1110$ has cost 3 while $0111$ has cost 0. Now suppose you can choose $k$ ...

Euclidean neighborhoods on Polyhedral surface

Let $(X, Vertex(X))$ be a Polyhedral surface (defined like in Polthier) , $x_0 \in X$ a vertex. Let $B_\epsilon(x_0)$ the euclidean ball centred at $x_0$ with radius $\epsilon$, $\epsilon > max ...

Finding integer points on an N-d convex hull

Suppose we have a convex hull computed as the solution to a linear programming problem (via whatever method you want). Given this convex hull (and the inequalities that formed the convex hull) is ...
