Franklin Djeumou Fomeni
A dynamic programming heuristic for the quadratic knapsack problem

Coauthor: Adam N. Letchford


It is well known that the standard (linear) knapsack problem can be solved exactly by dynamic programming in pseudo-polynomial time. The quadratic knapsack problem, by contrast, is NP-hard in the strong sense, which makes it unlikely that it can be solved in pseudo-polynomial time. It is possible, however, to convert the dynamic programming approach to the linear knapsack problem into a heuristic for the quadratic version. We explain how this can be done, and present some extremely promising computational results.
