Bisubmodular Function Minimization
This paper presents the first combinatorial polynomial algorithm for minimizing bisubmodular functions, extending the scaling algorithm for submodular function minimization due to Iwata, Fleischer, and Fujishige. Since the rank functions of delta-matroids are bisubmodular, the scaling algorithm naturally leads to the first combinatorial polynomial algorithm for testing membership in delta-matroid polyhedra. Key words. bisubmodular function, delta-matroid, scaling algorithm AMS subject classification. 90C27 DOI. 10.1137/S0895480103426339
