In order to gain insight into the quality of semidefinite relaxations of constrained quadratic 0/1 programming problems we study the quadratic knapsack problem. We investigate several basic semidefinite relaxations of this problem and compare their strength in theory and in practice. Various possibilities to improve these basic relaxations by cutting planes are discussed. The cutting planes either arise from quadratic representations of linear inequalities or from linear inequalities in the quadratic model. In particular, a large family of combinatorial cuts is introduced for the linear formulation of the knapsack problem in quadratic space. Computational results on a small class of practical problems illustrate the quality of these relaxations and cutting planes.
A Lagrangian Relaxation Approach to the EdgeWeighted Clique Problem

The bclique polytope CP n b is the convex hull of the node and edge incidence vectors of all subcliques of size at most b of a complete graph on n nodes. Including the Boolean quadric polytope QP n = CP n n as a special case and being closely related to the quadratic knapsack polytope, it has received considerable attention in the literature. In particular, the maxcut problem is equivalent with optimizing a linear function over CP n n . The problem of optimizing linear functions over CP n b has so far been approached via heuristic combinatorial algorithms and cuttingplane methods. We study the structure of CP n b in further detail and present a new computational approach to the linear optimization problem based on the idea of integrating cutting planes into a Lagrangian relaxation of an integer programming problem that Balas and Christofides had suggested for the traveling salesman problem. In particular, we show that the separation problem for tree inequalities becomes p...
