Abstract or Description
Hybrid methods that combine constraint programming with mathematical programming make essential use of continuous relaxations for global constraints. We state a relaxation for the cumulative constraint. In particular we identify facet-defining inequalities for problems in which some jobs have the same duration, release time, and resource consumption rate. We also identify a much larger class of valid inequalities that exist in all problems.
